Thailand’s navy SEALs posted the good news on Facebook just before 8 a.m. Eastern time.
Four more boys and their coach were removed today, follow the successful operation of 8 boys over the past two days.
Two of the boys are being treated for possible lung infections.
Family members have seen at least some of the boys from behind a glass barrier.
Some of the boys have been requesting their favourite spicy foods, but are being given mild foods until their systems readjust to normal life.
