Four boys have been rescued after being trapped underground for two weeks in northern Thailand in one of the most complicated rescues the world's best cave divers have seen.

The 12 boys trapped in a cave in Thailand may have no choice but to make the risky dive that's already claimed the life of a former navy seal. The boys are between 11 and 16 years old.

Sunday's mission actually went quicker than it had in rehearsals, Osotthanakorn said, which took place over the last three to four days.

Governor of Chiang Rai province, Narongsak Osatanakorn, said: "Today is D-Day".

Four players from the missing Thai football team that became trapped inside a flooded cave have been rescued after divers pulled off a complex rescue mission while racing against the clock.

He said 13 ambulances and multiple helicopters are ready to transport the boys and their coach to hospitals. Each of the boys will be accompanied by two divers.

The rescue teams had rehearsed the plan for several days, Narongsak said, and had managed to drain the cave water level considerably, but needed to move fast.

"I think Narongsak and the commanders changed their minds after the Australian doctor inspected the boys' health and mental state", one senior Thai journalist said. 'I know that we, the USA side, are prepared to stay as long as it takes to support the Thai operation.' She added that the core team consists of 17 people.

An Australian doctor who is part of the global team of rescuers checked the health of the boys Saturday to decide who should be brought to the surface first. They wore full-faced masks and hung on to divers' bodies on their way out, Narongsak said. In addition to treatment areas, the hospital will also provide reunion rooms for the young boys and their families.

U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that the U.S. government is working closely with Thai officials to get the children to safety. "Everyone is a professional so we're trying to put it away and avoid it happening again", he said, adding: "Everybody is focusing on getting these boys out - keeping them alive or getting them out". The Thai official in Sunday night's news conference said rescue workers need "about 10 hours" to prepare for next operation.

"If, as we all hope, they are reunited with their families in the coming days and their health allows them to travel, Federation Internationale de Football Association would be delighted to invite them to attend the 2018 World Cup final in Moscow as our guests".

Divers have brought the boys "food, electrolyte drinks, drinking water, medicine and oxygen canisters", the AP reports.
