The Thai Navy SEALs have safely rescued all 12 boys and their soccer coach from a flooded cave in Northern Thailand where they've been trapped since June 23.

Eight of the boys were brought out on stretchers over the first two days - four on Sunday and four on Monday.

Though four boys and their coach are still to be saved, American film crews have reportedly traveled to the rescue site in Chiang Rai to begin work on a movie telling the tale of the Wild Boars team, Australian website news.com.au reported. One diver, a retired Thai Navy SEAL named Saman Kunan, died in the rescue effort last week.

1 NEWS' Correspondent Kimberlee Downs from Chiang Rai, Thailand, following the successful completion of the rescue. Four more, plus the coach, are set to be brought out Tuesday.

"This has been the largest, most complex cave rescue in history".

The system, which had pumped hundreds of millions of gallons of rainwater out of the cave over the past 18 days, gave out soon after rescuers extracted the coach and the four Thai Navy Seals who had volunteered to stay with them.

"They (all the boys) will have to stay in the hospital for one week to wait for their results and to see if anything changes", he said.

Officials have generally waited hours to confirm rescues.

For now the boys were being kept in isolation to try to keep them safe from infections by outsiders. He added that all of them were generally healthy and in good spirits, thanks to their "high immunity" from playing football.

But while Narongsak Osatanakorn, the head of the joint command centre co-ordinating the operation, acknowledged Musk's offer he said that the mini submarine would not have been practical for the cave rescue. He said a medic and three SEALS in the cave, who've been looking after those trapped, will also come out.

It said: "We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what".

A few days of relatively clear weather has allowed them to pump enough water out of the cave to allow the boys to walk through some sections.

The last of the 12 boys and their soccer coach trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand were rescued on Tuesday.

"The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems", Jesada said.

Operations to pump water out of the cave went on despite heavy rain showers on Sunday and Monday. They were also able to talk on the phone. Officials said the first mission lasted about 11 hours, while the second mission was two hours faster.

Musk on Tuesday visited the cave and posted pictures and videos online.

"We would be honoured to welcome the team from the Wild Boars Football Club and their rescuers to Old Trafford this coming season".
