  • The second phase of the rescue operation to free the stranded Thai soccer team is underway.
  • One boy was rescued Monday, the Thai navy confirmed.
  • Reporters have since said three more have been rescued.
  • Four other members of the team were successfully extracted Sunday.
  • In all, 12 boys and their coach had been stuck in the Tham Luang cave network since June 23, when water levels partially flooded the escape routes.

Rescue divers have headed back inside a flooded cave complex in northern Thailand to rescue more members of the stranded soccer team — and appear to have made their first rescue of the day.
