Some divers rescuing the boys trapped in a cave in northern Thailand have traversed about 10 miles over the past two days.

The second shift of the rescue effort to evacuate the trapped soccer team saw a team of 18 Thai and international divers guide four boys about 2.5 miles to the cave's entrance using a 3-mile rope.

It was the second trip down the dark and narrow passageways for some of the members, according toThe Guardian.

After the first four rescued , however, the evacuation came to a halt. There was no choice: The rescuers had used up all the air tanks divers had placed along the route, said Narongsak Osottanakorn, the head of the search operations. It would take divers 10 to 20 hours to replace the

The foreign divers and five Thai divers entered the caves after an Australian doctor gave the all-clear. Locals were required because none of the foreigners speak Thai and communication before and during the dive was key.

"The factors are as good as yesterday [and] the rescue team is the same team with a few replacements for those exhausted," Chiang Rai governor and operation chief Narongsak Osatanakorn said Monday.

For the first four rescues on Sunday, two divers accompanied each boy, one from the side and one from behind. In total, 13 foreign cave divers and five Thai Navy SEAL divers participated in Sunday's rescue, according to Reuters.

Dozens of other medical professionals and rescuers were at the cave entrance to assist the divers when they emerged with the boys. On Monday, at least 80 other rescue workers from several countries were there to help.

But four boys, members of a Thai soccer team ages 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach, remained stranded as of Monday evening.

Healthy and demanding fried rice: first boys rescued from Thai cave in hospital

  Healthy and demanding fried rice: first boys rescued from Thai cave in hospital The first four boys rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand were in good health and demanding fried rice in hospital on Monday, the head of the rescue team said, as divers resumed operations to bring out the remaining members of the group. The bid to rescue the boys - aged between 11 and 16 - and their 25-year-old soccer coach got going again after a break late on Sunday to replenish the team's oxygen supplies and make other preparations deep inside the cave.

Four Thai boys , who have been trapped in a cave along with eight other young boys and their 25-year-old soccer coach since June 23, were miraculously rescued by rescue divers and taken to a nearby hospital on Jul.

Four of the children have so far been rescued and taken to hospital, while others have undergone health assessments inside the cave . The Thai government has released a graphic demonstrating how divers hope the rescue mission will unfold. Each boy will be guided through the cave complex

The rescue workers need 20 hours before the third operation, Osotthanakorn said Monday afternoon, but weather and water levels will also affect plans for the final rescue.

About 0.6 miles of the journey on Sunday was believed to be underwater, requiring the boys to wear full face masks.

Ben Reymenants, who was one of the divers who first found the boys a week ago, described to The New York Times how strong the current inside the cave was.

"You're literally pulling yourself, hand over hand, in zero visibility," he said. "You can't read your depth gauge, you can't read the time, so you're basically flying blind in a direction you don't know."

The boys have been trapped inside the Tham Luang cave for over two weeks due to monsoon flooding.
