Emergency workers carry a stretcher with one of the rescued boy to be transported by ambulance to a hospital.
But rescuing the remaining five people, which includes the boys' 25-year-old soccer coach, could take more than one operation, Narongsak said. The hands form a circle, symbolizing the bond and the joint effort by several worldwide teams to rescue the boys. "Hooyah", the Thai Navy SEALS wrote on their Facebook page Monday, referring to the boys' soccer team, the Wild Boars.
Rescuers found them huddled on top of a dry rock about 2.5 miles from the cave's entrance after nine days of searching.
Four of the boys were safely rescued on Sunday after rescuers carried out a risky operation, amid fears the waters will rise again to a unsafe level.
Sunday's "masterpiece" three-and-a-half-hour mission saw four children being calmly guided to safety after 15 days of being stuck in their fetid underground prison.

"We have not been told which child has been brought out".
