A light illuminates members of the soccer team found alive in a cave in Thailand as rescue workers locate the missing boys and their coach, July 2, 2018 in Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park, Thailand.

Rescuers now have to decide how best to get the group out in their weakened condition.

Members of a youth soccer team and their coach have been found alive following nine days spent trapped in a cave in Thailand, per CNN's Kocha Olarn and Lauren Said-Moorhouse.

Their rescue brought hope in a desperate search that attracted worldwide help and captivated the Southeast Asian country.

Narongsak said earlier the passageway goes upward in some places and downward in others and is very narrow, making it hard for divers and their gear to fit through. "But no one is in red condition".

Staying in place may be the safest option, authorities say.

The cave system is at least four miles long and waters can reach 5 metres (16 feet) during the rainy season, from June through October, Police Col. Kam Saardluan told the AP.

Family members of the missing hugged each other as they cheered the news.

The boys, reportedly aged 11 to 16, and their coach went missing on June 23.

"The doctor advised that we should provide several kind of medicine to prevent infection and other illness", Osatanakorn said, adding that medics had reached the young footballers.

The boys can be seen perching on a slope inside the cave, dressed in shorts and t-shirts.

A doctor will spend the night with the group and determine when they're strong enough to be taken out.

Still, rescuers believe the boys have a chance of surviving, and could have access to fresh water inside the cave, and medical teams were practicing drills to treat survivors, and airlift them from a make-shift helipad.

"If you ask me now while we are still assessing all sides then I don't think they will be home soon", Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters. Many people are coming.

Narongsak said on Tuesday that the missing were given high-protein liquid food, painkillers and antibiotics. At the end of the video, a boy asked in English, "Where do you come from?"

Everything depends on how hard the dives are. Mirza said that "trying to take non-divers through cave is one of the most unsafe situations possible, even if the dives are relatively easy". He said rescuers must still decide whether to try to get the team out of the cave or to instead provide them with survival supplies until water levels go down.

In the video, posted on the Thai Navy SEAL Facebook page, one of the boys shouts to the rescuers: "we are hungry. shall we go outside?"

"We called this "mission impossible" because it rained every day ... but with our determination and equipment we fought nature", Narongsak said.

Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha thanked the worldwide teams and rescuers who helped find the group. Many, many people. We're the first.

The rescuers had been stymied repeatedly by rising water that forced divers to withdraw for safety reasons.

Rescuers had been working on Monday to clear a constricted passageway for divers deep inside the flooded cave complex in a search operation that has been hampered by heavy rain. Several fissures have been found and teams have explored some, although so far, none lead to the trapped boys.
