Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the rescued boys and some of their parents said they had not been told who had been brought out. They were missing for nine days before being discovered by British divers last week.

After pondering for days how to get the 13 out, a rescue operation was launched on Sunday when four of the boys were brought out, tethered to rescue divers.

They wore face masks and were tied to buddy divers who carried their oxygen tanks, guiding them through more than two kilometres of narrow, dark corridors using torches and guide ropes. One Thai navy diver died last Friday while supporting the mission. Rescue crews are anxious about the amount of air the trapped children are using, which is being drained rapidly.

Cheers erupted from the dozens of volunteers and journalists awaiting news of whether the intricate and high-risk rescue mission had succeeded.

The search operation quickly turned into a rescue mission involving 90 divers - 50 foreign and 40 Thai - though some warned it could take months.

"At this moment (there are) no worrisome conditions, everyone is safe", Jesada said.

Dr. Jedsada Chokedamrongsook, the permanent secretary of the Thai Health Ministry, said the first group of boys taken out on Sunday were aged 14 to 16.

Mr Karadzic, who the BBC reported was stationed near a hard stretch of the cave about halfway along the escape route to replace oxygen tanks and help guide people through, said the rescue workers had feared the worst.

On Thursday, Environment Canada had forecast a maximum temperature of 35 C (95 F) but said the heat index would make it feel like 45 C.

Family members have seen at least some of the boys from behind a glass barrier.

Twelve young boys and their soccer coach were trapped in a cave in northern Thailand by floodwaters more than two weeks ago.

Asked if their actions might be seen as insensitive at such a delicate time, Smith said: "There's going to be other production companies coming in, so we have to act pretty quickly".

"We were obviously very afraid of any kind of panic from the divers", he said, adding he was in awe of the boys' ability to stay calm.

The last three members of the "Wild boar" football team and their coach was rescued today ending a three day rescue attempt that had caught the world's attention. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected. It is made of rocket parts & named Wild Boar after kids' soccer team. Some had infections but otherwise all of them were in good health.

"I think everyone will welcome them back with the love".

A nutritionist is monitoring their diet and has recommended that they eat nothing spicy or salty - despite the boys' cravings for spicy basil pork and rice, and grilled pork.
