The first three members of the Thai football team have been rescued, a local rescue official told CNN.
“Three kids are out. They are currently at the field hospital near the cave,” said Tossathep Boonthong, chief of Chiang Rai’s health department and part of the rescue team.
“We are giving them a physical examination. They have not been moved to Chiang Rai hospital yet,” Tossathep told Reuters.
Meanwhile, BBC posted videos of two ambulances leaving the site, presumably carrying the boys. Meanwhile, a helicopter has also taken off from the vicinity of the cave complex.
