Six boys have exited a flooded cave in northern Thailand where they have been trapped for more than two weeks, a senior member of rescue operation's medical team said on Sunday.

Authorities in northern Chiang Rai province began the dangerous mission to bring out the 12 boys and their soccer coach earlier on Sunday.

Four of 12 Thai schoolboys were rescued from a flooded cave on July 8 2018 in a daring and dangerous operation to save the children and their soccer coach who have been trapped underground for more than two weeks.
