Their plight transfixed Thailand and the rest of the world, as authorities struggled to devise a plan to get the boys - aged between 11 and 16 - and their 25-year-old coach out.

On Sunday night, Thai navy SEALs posted a celebratory note on their Facebook page, saying: "Have sweet dreams everyone". In addition to treatment areas, the hospital will also provide reunion rooms for the young boys and their families.

"There is no other day that we are more ready than today", he said.

"We will still maintain our planned mission and the two main obstacles are time and water", a spokesperson said.

Two Britons, John Volanthen and Richard Stanton, are understood to have a leadership role and were among the divers who found the boys and their coach marooned on a bank inside the cave. A former Thai navy SEAL passed out and died making the dive Friday.

He added doctors assessed they were "very fit physically and mentally".

Residents of the nearby town of Mae Sai, located directly on the border with Myanmar around seven miles away from the cave entrance, have been following the saga of the boys' disappearance and rescue efforts intently.

EU Warns US Imposing Car Import Taxes Could Backfire
It's the same approach the Trump administration used before it slapped tariffs on steel and aluminum imports earlier this year. By any measure of protectionism, the United States maintains one of the most open trade policies of any country in the world.

Peter Clark, an Ottawa trade consultant, said US automotive tariffs would be a "disaster - pure, unmitigated disaster" for Canada. Canada would "not back down" in the face of new U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminium, according to the country's foreign minister.


Narongsak said that there was no time limit on the rescue and that its progress would depend on weather and conditions inside the cave, but expected it to last through Monday.

Jake Zweig said on "Fox & Friends" that he was confident in the SEALs working to rescue the 12 boys and their coach, but that there is a possibility of a rescuer losing his life. "As soon as they get out, that's what they'll be checking: their oxygen levels and their breathing". They gave a deadline of 9:00 am to clear out, setting off a frenzy of moving and packing.

"Don't be anxious, I miss everyone". "I had been anxious about my son, that he would be exhausted, he would be tired", he said. Grandpa, Uncle, Mom, Dad and siblings, I love you all.

Once past that stretch, the boys' escape route forks east at a T-junction, and they must scrabble over some diverse terrain including giant boulders, sand and slippery rocks with sudden cliff-like drops and further submerged passageways.

"I am still waiting here at the cave, keeping my fingers crossed to see whether my son will be one of those to come out today", Akkarat Wongsukjan, a mother of Pheerapat - known by his nickname "Night" - told AFP.

Thirteen medical teams were stationed outside the cave on Sunday - each with its own helicopter and ambulance - one for each of 12 boys and their coach.

Thai officials said Friday that oxygen levels inside the cave plummeted to a unsafe 15% - shy of the US Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration's "optimal range" of oxygen, which is between 19.5% and 23.5%.
