Fifth rescued boy leaves cave site by ambulance
The fifth boy to be brought out of the cave system left the site on Monday afternoon by ambulance, an eyewitness at the scene told CNN.
Rescuers brought at least one boy out of the cave system on Monday, according to a witness outside the cave in northern Thailand.
He joins four other boys who were rescued on Sunday from deep inside the cave by a team of international and Thai dive experts.

The boys, all part of a youth soccer team known as the Wild Boars, first went missing over two weeks ago. Last Monday they were discovered huddled on a narrow shelf of rock deep within the flooded cave system.
With the exception of a few hours of rain Sunday afternoon, the weather has generally been kind to the rescue efforts, allowing them to pump millions of liters of water out of the flooded cave system, vastly improving conditions.
But the monsoon is an ever-present worry and even a short period of torrential rain could set back rescue efforts for the remaining boys and their coach.

My view: The cave Divers are heroes, they're just incredible. I'm shocked that the new humanitarian campaigner and good samaritan Kim Kardashian, didn't show any support for the kids in the cave by at least posting their picture on her Instagram page, and saying something positive as a mother of three, but instead she's sharing the disgusting photo of her crotch with her legs spread open to the world, it seems some advertisers have double standard to still associate themselves with this trash, while they boycott TV stations that their presenters are not politically correct.
