The condition of one of the Mu Pa footballers rescued from the Tham Luang cave in Chiang Rai on Sunday, which had been a cause for concern, is improving, a source said.



He had been listed as "red", signifying a serious case after being trapped in the cave since June 23. However, he is recovering and is now listed as "yellow", which is stable, after being evacuated from the cave on Sunday and admitted to Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital. 

A Twitter user, Lisa Wilkinson, quoted Australian medical expert Dr Richard Harris who examined the 13 Mu Pa Academy members in the cave as saying that the weakest boys would be brought out first. This was contrary to earlier statements from the rescue team that the strongest will come out first.

Wilkinson claimed that the weakest boy was listed as code red, meaning a serious case. At 9pm on Sunday, four boys had been evacuated from the cave.
