The 12 boys trapped in a cave in Thailand may have no choice but to make the unsafe dive that's already claimed the life of a former navy seal.
The boys, aged 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach entered the cave to celebrate a birthday.
President Donald Trump on Sunday took partial credit for the rescue of several of the dozen young Thai soccer players who managed to get trapped in a flooded cave.
"Now and in the next three or four days, the conditions are ideal (for evacuation) in terms of the water, the weather and the boys' health", Narongsak told reporters.
"Today is D-Day", Gov. Narongsak Osattanakorn of the Chiang Rai region in Thailand said Sunday.
In the latest development, at least 6 boys are reported to have been rescued while the rest still fight for their lives in the flooded cave.
The group of 12 boys has been trapped inside a cave in northern Thailand for two weeks. "They have not been moved to Chiang Rai hospital yet", Tossathep told Reuters.
According to a document released by the Thai authorities, two divers will accompany each of the teenagers.
But Narongsak said earlier that mild weather and falling water levels over the last few days had created optimal conditions for an underwater evacuation that won't last if it rains again.
While the governor would not confirm the identities of the four boys, he said the first one emerged at 5:40pm local time, followed by the second boy 10 minutes later.
"There's no time limit on the operation", he said. The pause will give divers time to prepare gear, including masks and refilling air tanks, for the next round of rescue efforts. "Finding the boys doesn't mean we've finished our mission".
The announcement of US government involvement was sudden and this tweet is looked at as Trump's first public comment on the rescue mission. In total, the mission could last several days, he also said, though the team of worldwide divers on the site are apparently feeling "buoyed" by the success of the operation so far.
The boys were immediately taken to the hospital for evaluation after being trapped underground for almost two weeks.
It's also understood the decision to ban the media, totalling about 1000, from the area around the cave entrance on Sunday was to facilitate faster ambulance access to the freeway to get the rescued boys to a football field where they could be taken by helicopter to the Chiang Rai hospital.
It was announced the next dive will take place 10 to 20 hours after the first was completed.
