The four survivors rescued on Monday have all been hospitalized in Chiang Rai, the nearest large city, said Narongsak Osottanakorn, the head of the search operation.

“All of them are safe and conscious,” he said.

Those rescues bring the total to eight, after two days of pulling team members from the cave. Twelve players of the Wild Boars soccer team and their coach were trapped in the flooded cave complex on June 23.
