Final Rescue operation is underway , Nineteen divers enter the Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand on a gruelling.

Nineteen divers have entered the Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand on a gruelling, hazardous mission to rescue those people still trapped inside.

They extracted a ninth boy on Tuesday, the Thai Navy said, with unconfirmed reports of two more.

If confirmed, one child and an adult remain to be rescued, bringing to a close an epic operation marred by one diver’s death.

Eight boys rescued earlier are said to be in good mental and physical health.

The group, a football team, had got stuck deep inside on 23 June after heavy rains caused flooding.

After they were found by divers last week, huddled in darkness on a ledge and cut off from the outside world for nine days, the race began to get them out before the weather deteriorated even further.

The boys evacuated so far have undergone X-rays and blood tests. They will remain under observation in hospital for at least seven days.

A doctor and Thai Navy Seal divers have been looking after those still on the ledge, about 4km (2.5 miles) from the cave’s mouth.
