Depicting boys stuck inside the cave, the message on the sculpture read, "We pray for the safe rescue of the Thai boys". But rescue officials were also anxious about dwindling oxygen levels in the cave.

Eight members of the football team had already been rescued by experienced divers from the cave in Tham Luang before Tuesday.

Till now eight boys are rescued from the Thai cave complex.

"Today (Tuesday) we hope to be faster", Narongsak added, of the complex and risky operation that involves diving through narrow, flooded chambers. ABC News identified the Wild Boar soccer team players Mongkol Boonbiam, Songpong Jaiwong, Ponchai Kumluang, Pipat Pothi, Duangpetch Promthep, Adul Samon, Panumat Sangdee, Peerapat Sompiangjai, Prajak Sutham, Nuttawut Takamsong, Chanin Wiboonrungrueng and Eakkarat Wongsukchan.

Tech billionaire Elon Musk shared new videos of a kid-sized submarine that engineers developed to help save the trapped youth soccer team inside the miles-long Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Chiang Rai Province, Thailand.

The leader of the rescue operation said an additional diver was assigned to the group to bring out all four remaining boys and their coach who have now been trapped inside 17 days.

Underscoring the danger behind the mission, Ivan Karadzic said, "They are diving in something considered an extremely hazardous environment".

The boys were still being quarantined from their parents because of the risk of infection and would likely be kept in hospital for a week for tests, officials said earlier.

The second group of 4 that were pulled out afterwards are aged between 12 and 14.

They were trapped in the cave that became flooded by monsoon rains while they were exploring it after a soccer practice on June 23.

"Just returned from Cave 3", tweeted the CEO.
