activity here. about 1,000 yards up that dirt road is the entrance to the cave. those two boys coming out in separate ambulances spaced a couple minutes apart. a tremendous freen si here, especially among the reporters. you can imagine the feeling as we now know two of these soccer players are out of there. we saw another ambulance going in, so hopes are there is a third extracted soon. >> they're coming out in groups of four, can you tell us the protocol here? >> reporter: each one of the children, the young men, is being brought out with two buddy divers, they'll assist them throughout the entire journey. some of the way they have to dive and i suppose have dived, going underwater for short period of times. we know crews have been working
around the clock to level out the top of the cave and give them breathing room and let them float. we know this is an arduous journey throughout the snaking cave that's three miles or thereabouts -- >> we may have lost the audio connection. so let's go to james longman. james, we were listening to matt talk there about this rescue in process. while it is great news that two boys, we have confirmed -- abc news has confirmed, have been brought out alive, what makes this news even cheerier, is we've been told that they're starting with the weakest boys. so if they're able to get the weakest boys out, doesn't that give us some optimism about the rest of the team and the coach? >> reporter: absolutely, dan. that is the thing that everyone here is thinking. i can't tell you the
anticipation we have been feeling here in the jungle watching this road behind me. when those ambulances came out, the shock here was just extraordinary. we knew it was coming. but remember, when we first arrived here in thailand, we thought these boys were missing, presumed dead, now the weakest among them, as you say, have now been found. we watched as the ambulances flickered through the night, the first and second very slowly to in this case sure their precious cargo was okay inside. we understand they made their way to a hospitelicopter and te the hospital. we should urge caution, this is a long way to go. two out, but now the rest of the team and their soccer coach still waiting. >> two boys have made it out, we have ten more boyfriends and the coach remaining. the boys have been there for 16
days. they're weak. but they said they're ready for the missions, the rains are coming, the monsoons are coming which is why they had to do this now. we know they were escorted out by navy seals but this operation is going to take quite sometime, correct? >> reporter: yes, the operation to begin this rescue began at 10:00 a.m. local time and we're well into the evening here in thailand. we understood the journey to get to where they were, some of them still remain, was five hours possibly. so the rescue divers have to get there, get them, get them ready, talk to them, get them in the right frame of mind and then bring them out. so we understand this could take three, possibly four days to complete. that tunnel, most of it, is still submerged in water. the big issue was always the water level. they've pumped out gallons of
water to bring it down and now their hand was forced because of the bad weather but it seems the hope is alive because the weakest have been brought out and seem to be on their way to the hospital. we don't know their condition but we're all praying. >> just great news. we're hearing reports that there may be more that have made it out of the tunnel. let's go back to matt. matt, what can you tell us? >> reporter: i've just confirmed that there are going to be four of those young boys, they are the weakest of the 12 who are going to be brought out tonight. minues ago when we spoke earlier i saw a third ambulance go in and seconds ago another ambulance made its way up that hill, that is good news. there are a number of places and chambers inside the cave where the boys and divers can rest and get a medical checkup. the fact they are ready to transport them to a hospital is good news.
in addition to that, the fact that they actually made it out is great because it tells us they are strong enough to do it and as you guys have all mentioned that the rest of them are more fit and able to finish this job. people are very excited here. we talked about the possible problems inside the cave, the complicatio complications, aside from the water and the ceilings, we're in a cave today, those rocks are incredibly sharp but in addition to that, there's been this decreasing level of oxygen in the cave. right now it's about 17%. the content of oxygen in the air you exhale, it's not something you want to breathe for too long. that's why they're eager to get them out as quickly and as safely as possible. >> a tremendous achievement. an enormous amount of planning involved here. let's go to the hospital now where the boys andheir coach
will be brought once they're all out. the four boys we believe are out at this time are en route or at least some of them are en route. adrienne bankart is right there. what can you tell us? >> reporter: we have confirmed with a police spokesperson from the hospital here on scene, as well as the u.s. state department that two of the boys have been treated by field me digs and are on their way to want helicopter. we have crews there on scene. that held pad is about a 1 to kilometers trip. right behind us here the roads continue to be closed as they akuwait those ambulances. one ambulance is assigned to each boy. they'll arrive at one helicopter that will transport the two children heret e enth c for days and weeks here with
i'm sure tears of joy elated there's good news to report on this story that the world is watching. >> that is right. elation well deserved. i just want to clarify again, abc has learned the breaking news that two of the 12 boys have been taken out of that cave in thailand. we're hearing reports that two more may be close to making their way out. a great piece of news but much more to be done. >> we want to return you to your regular programming. which for many of you will bedn cover the story here throughout the day. thank you for joining us on this special report. >> annou special report from abc news. and as you just heard inws thailand, that very complicated rescue operation is under way to free those 12 boys and their
