One boy emerged in a serious condition, now recovering
The condition of one of the Mu Pa footballers who were rescued from the Tham Luang Cave in Chiang Rai last evening, and initially was initially causing concerns with his health, is improving.
He had been listed as red, signifying a ‘serious case’ after being trapped in Tham Luang cave since June 23. However officials now say he is recovering and listed as yellow after being extracted from the cave and delivered to Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital.
A Twitter user, Lisa Wilkinson, quoted Australian medical expert Dr Richard Harris who examined the 13 Mu Pa Academy members in the cave as saying that the weakest boys would be brought out first.
This is contrary to earlier statements from the rescue team that the strongest will come out first.
Wilkinson claimed that the weakest boy was listed as code red, meaning a serious case.
At 8.30pm on Sunday the former Governor of Chiang Rai spoke to the media informing them that four boys had been evacuated from the cave, although some media agencies were saying that six had been evacuated.
The operation will recommence today after Navy Seals and divers replenish the oxygen taks inside the cave for more rescues to continue.
