trapped two weeks. >> the first boy was the fifth to be rescued. four others brought out over the weekend. ben tracy is at the scene. >> >> reporter: good morning the second face was a success. rescuing four more of the boys. there are five now remain in the cave. they hope to rescue them tomorrow. inside the cave workers have been drilling holes in the rock so they can more easily navigate the dark cavern. the efforts are paying off. this video shows the first group moments after being rescued from the cave. within two minutes they were on helicopters and flown to a hospital where beds were lined up at the front door. so far thai officials say the rescue operation has gone better and faster than expected. a source tells abc news they have added five more people to
the team of expert divers in hopes to rescue the remain boys and coach in a shorter period of time. here is how this dangerous rescue mission works. each of the boys wears a dive mask interning the murky water. they can barely see anything in front of them. they are led by a diver carrying their oxygen tank and guided by a rope. another follows from behind. the entire journey covers 2.5 miles through deep water and steep climbs. the biggest concern is a pinch point in the cave that is just 15 inches across. in that area the boys have to separate from the divers in order to fit through and reach a small patch of dry land before going back to the water. the thai government says each boy ranging from 11 to 16 years old and the coach was assessed and cleared by a doctor and the boys were made fully aware of the rescue plan agreeing to face whatever it took to get out of
the cave. now officials say it could take 24 to 48 hours to rescue everyone in the cave. theoriesing time and theoriesing the weather. they want to make sure to get everybody out before any sort of heavy rains come and potentially flood that cave which would make the rescue more challenging. mora. >> ben, how do they decide which boys go out first? >> reporter: the local governor here acting as the head of the rescue mission, he says they are taking the strongest out first, that may seem counterintuitive. but the reasoning for that is likely they want the boys have the best chance of surviving getting through the rescue mission first. they want to give the divers the chance to go through this several times before getting to the boys perhaps weaker and would be more risky. mora. >> all the successful rescues have kept morale up. that's important. the rescue team members are
taken to chiang rai hospitals. the boys were admitted yesterday are here. thailand's interior minister says they are strong and seep safe. anna warner is at the to want good morning. >> reporter: and what we have seen is the ambulances arriving bringing the latest boys in quick succession here to the hospital. we do not yet know anything about their medical condition. what we know is the first group of four boys, between the ages of 14 and 16, all of them are reported to be in stable condition. now over the next few days all of these boys will be receiving detailed medical checks. doctors will be looking out for immediate problems like dehide drags, malnutrition. also kept in isolation in case they have any viruses or diseases. you want to keep them separated. and they will will eventually see families. any arrived at the hospital yesterday after a 37-mile
journey by helicopters and ambulances that's the same for the boys coming in tonight here at the cave site but we will keep you updated on the conditions. >> thank you. joining us from london is toby hamnett he is legal advise adviser to have the cave rescue council. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> what's the most important thing for the divers right now. >> the rescuer is always subject to a moving assessment to ensure that whatever happens is the safest possible environment not only for the children but also for the rescue team who are all volunteers from around the world. >> tobiy, the distance between the mouth of the cave and where the boys are trapped is over 2.5 miles. scribe how perilous that is. >> in any cave environment it can be difficult. but in a cave such as this which is flooded to the roof in large
parts, the visibility is poor not only because it's in the dark but also the storm water of the monsoon would have churned up lots of mud on the way. and the cave itself has constrictens on route which cause difficulties. >> toby, this is a challenge even for the most experienced divers. explain to us what it must be like to try to teach a young boy some of whom don't know how to swim how to go threw the perilous journey. >> difficult. no two ways about it. but the divers at the front and cutting edge of the rescue are of a sure of themselves and able to project capability and confidence very clearly. in order to ensure this trust between the rescue team and the divers themselves. >> all right, toby, the world is watching. everyone is watching hoping and praying at the same time but so far so good. thank you for joining us this morning. >> no problems thank you very much. >> and some of the parents have
sent letters to kids inside. one says know that mommy is waiting for you in front of the cave. i miss you please don't feel bad. another mom says dad and momma waiting to arrange the birthday party. please get out soon. mommy knows you can do it. imagine that. the best letter goes to the coach from the parents. please don't blame yourself for this. we want you to rest assured every parent is not upset and angry. and everybody understands and supports you. that must mean a lot. >> and he apologized from inside. you know, you read the letters and you imagine a small boy being under water and you look at the cave and the way it goes, how they can read and have the patience and restraint to make it out. >> one story is that coach. he apparently studied at a buddhist temple. he is a calm guy guy. >> we all sneed a little meditation until this is taken care of. >> true. >> we will bring you news on the rescue as it breaks and ahead -- ahead talk to cave diving
experts about the dangerous operation. meanwhile, president trump will announce the next nominee to the supreme court tonight at the white house. mr. trump said yesterday he is still looking at a group of finalists. >> let's say it's the four people. but they're excellent. everyone you can't go wrong. but i'm getting close to a final decision. >> sources tell cbs news the four contenders are federal appeals courts amy barrett, thomas hardiman. jan crawford is at the supreme court, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, john. in the group we have seen the contenders rice and fall and rice and fall again. from the beginning one of those names has been at or here the top. and that's brett kavanaugh. he has the boxes checked. the elite legal credentials the president wants. yale college, law school. he clerked for justice kennedy. and he is seen as a real intellectual heavyweight on the supreme court. but he is very experienced and
that weirdly is enough is a knock. he inwritten more than 300 opinions. worked for ken starr. mitch mcconnell has flagged his confirmation may take longer because he mass a record. that's kept him from ceiling the deal and left an opening for some of the other contenders. like judge thomas hardiman. the president likes his personal story bringing diversity to the court. he is the first justice outds the ivy league. he went to notre dame. georgetown law school. he helped pay for college by driving a taxi. he is an interesting choice from pennsylvania. the other two, kind ever now we think maybe a fallen off the left raymond kethledge and amy coney barrett. kethledge may drift to the left and is unproven which some nominees have done. and nonjudge barrett, the president is very ee namerred
with her personal story. the first conservative woman on the supreme court. but he thinks she would be the pick next time. 46 years old. plenty of time he thinks to get another pick thap that's where we are right now. >> all right. jan crawford at the supreme court. a little more than 14 hours until we get a decision. krns will bring you a special report when president trump announces his nominee for the supreme court this evening. here is our anchor from washington. can you see it at 6 pac time here on cbs. the trump administration says talks with north korea to get rid of nuclear weapon are on track. secretary of state mike pompeo reported progress durng his trip toening pyongyang but the regime issued a statement saying the u.s. was making gangster demands. pompeo dismissed that as bluester. >> if the requests were gangster like the world is a gangster. because there wasedition beu.n.

vegetable trays. seven people have been affected. del monte recalled them last month. eight boys out of twelve have been rescued so far this morning. a daring mission is being repeated this morning. ben tracy is near the cave site north of chiang rai, thailand. ben, what can you tell us now? >> reporter: good morning. so all the boys that have been rescued are at the hospital in chiang rai where they will be monitored by doctors. that will take its course over the next several days. divers and crews have been working around the clock with operations to save them. they have replaced the air tanks around the underground route. tomorrow they will attempt
another rescue mission. the four boys who were rescued first, those boys on sunday were rushed to a local hospitalrai. the interior minister said those boys are well and safe but they will need routine checks. there are already 18 divers assigned to this complex operation. the changing conditions inside have increased the urgency of this situation to get these boys out. now, the entire journey covers about 2.5 miles. they go through deep water, steep climbs. the biggest concern is a pinch point in the cave that is just 15 inches across. now, in that area the boys have to separate from the divers that are guiding them in order to fit through and reach a small patch of dry land before they go back down into the water. now, the other issue here, of course, is the weather. we have seen on and off heavy rains here. what they're trying to do is get all these boys out before monsoon rains return, potentially flooding that cave and making this rescue effort
much more difficult. nora? >> a great deal of urgency. ben tracy in thailand, thank you. ed sorenson is a potential diver to go to thailand if needed. he serves on the international underwater cave rescue & recovery coordinator. he joins us from florida's blue springs state park. ed, thanks for joining us. what are the risks and the dangers to the boys and the divers? >> well, there is just so many risks in a rescue operation such as this one. obviously the zero vis is one of the biggest. the extreme high flow. in this particular case, the flow seems to be dropping down li bit. should help t but the narrow restrictions are going to be one of the biggest ones. stress is one thing that they
really need to keep in mind. these boys aren't used to being in the water. they don't even know how to swim. they haven't had scuba apparatus on, and then to have to get separated from the rescuer and then get stuck through a small hole, it's going to be stressful for them. >> what are you focusing on? as a layperson, we're just saying, please, hurry, get them out as quickly as they can. when you hear an operation is underway, what are you focusing on and saying, oh, this is going well, or, houston, we have a problem here? >> some people don't understand that just being in over your head is extremely stressful to some people. we don't even let people start cave training until at least 18 years of age, and there's a reason for that. these kids are so young. plus they're supposed to have a good comfort level in the water before they can start. these kids don't even know how to swim. they haven't even been open water scuba training, so they've
just got every obstacle against them. they're beating all the odds so far and it's just fantastic they've had such a great outcome so far. >> ed, if you had to teach me quickly, and i had one of these boys to have to get through these five hours, what would you tell me to have some kind of chance in this? >> well, i can't do that because that would speculate of what they're doing. basically, i would tell those boys they just need to listen to everything the rescuers say and just be strong and get through this. >> all right. ed sorenson, thank you so much for your expertise. some immigrants who joined the military with the hope of becoming a u.s. citizen say they're being discharged instead. ahead we get to the bottom of cr the out.o a . and if you're on the go, apply to our cbsdcast app on yo wherever you like to download

through saving 12 soccer players. they have rescued four more of these boys. >> from what we have seen tonight, is those ambulances arriving bringing the latest boys in quick succession to the hospital. we have seen it rise and fall and rise and fall again, and one of those judges is at the cop and that's brett kavana kavanagh. >> a case of international espionage has turned into a murder investigation. we have seen a number of reunificatio reunifications, a handful over the last few weeks, but people across the country are growing more frustrated with what they say is government in action. his cat decided there was way too much going on, way too much talking.
>> leave it to the cat to steal the show, they always do. >> that cat was on a mission, didn't seem to care that his owner was in the middle of an interview. >> he had other plans. >> i'm norah o'donnell with john dickerson and gayle king. there is some breaking news this morning, a second round of rescue operations in thailand is over this morning avenue recovering more people from a flooded cave. rescuers have been trying to save a youth sock ersoccer team their coach since jewuly 23. >> the local governor says there are concerns about more rain and flooding. ben tracey is in thailand with the urgent push to rescue the boys. >> reporter: it was surprisingly dry here today so rescuers were seizing the moment to get as many of the boys out of the cave
as they can before rains return here and the water floods the cave. the second face of this rescue operation is over for the day. four more boys were taken out of the cave on stretchers. they are still pumping water out to make sure that the rescue is as safe as possible. now if the cave were to flood more, the remaining boys could be stuck on a piece of land that is only about 100 square feet. that concern is part of what prompted this risky rescue operation to begin. now to giet out of this cave, oe diver is following with a rope. the journey out of the cave is said to take up to eight hours. one of the most difficult points is a pinch point that's just 15 inches across. that is where these boys have to
separate from the divers just to fit through. officials are telling us that it could take another 24 to 48 hours to finish this entire process, to get everybody out of the cave, but they're clearly ahead of schedule, and that is a good sign. >> it is, ben tracey, it's great, great, great news and we are all waiting and hoping and praying it continues. thanks a lot. the rescued boys are getting a full medical examination at the hospital in thailand. this doctor is trained to conduct exams in similar circumstances. back at the table again.ve you let's talk about the lack of sunlight for over two weeks. what does that do to you when you haven't seen sunlight. >> let's talk about sensory depravati depravation, that essentially makes your brain act unusual. your heart, your blood vessels, there are changes that occur, and without specific areas of the brain that are -- you can't
really have a sense of who you are, but also others around you. >> they're 11 to 16 years old. the brain is still developing, executive dpunfunction is up in air, explain how that would affect children of this age. >> kids of this age are very resilient, between the ages of 10 and 16. they have a lot of blood in their heart and blood vessels so they're able to with stand stress. part of this reserve is actually in their fat stores. because what they have are lots of brown fat and this is metabolically active fact. this is exactly what they need to stay alive. so we would understand that. different from white fat which is not metabolically are in the hospital and they're being kept separate in their family because they're way reasonable doubt abo worried about infection.
>> they're worried about a ba bacteria that's comes from the droppings of bats, the problem is the incubation can be up to three weeks. a quarantine time would where insufficient. the psychological effects are really more severe at this point. so infection would be less. >> it wouldn't you want to be with your parents immediately and getting to hug you. >> this is so critical, i think that children need to be hugged, love is so important, support, they have to understand that their parents are here for them. certainly the divers are there and they have been an incredible and immense support of love and comfort as well. but it's that reunion with parents and family that are so cree. >> the kids on the other hand are sending notes back to their parents saying don't worry about me, i'm fine, everything is okay. i can't help but think how terrified they must be and the
psychological effects this could have on them. >> fear of the unknown, it's dark, we talked about sensory depravation, the brain is trying to stay active keeping itself alert. without that input, your brain really suffers, while some kids can get through better than others, it's really collectively, they have to bond together. so stimulating themselves, talking, meditating, telling stories, this is key to getting to any kind of severe, prolonged situations. >> you must be very encouraged as a doctor by what you're seeing so far? >> very encouraged. it's a credit to their strength, their conditioning. and also their mental condition. >> you just told us so much new information that was really helpful. thank you so much. we're going to learn who president trump wants for the
nominee tonight. sources tell nbc news, contenders are sprkupreme court judges are amy coney barrett, brett kavanagh and john hardim n hardiman, hardiman and kethledge may be easier to confirm. the executive vice president of the federalist society, a conservative lawyer's group, he's currently on leave. he advices president trump on judicial ncandidates and he helped create the list for the president. good morning. >> good morning. >> when was the last time you talked to the president and has he made a decision? >> i spoke to him yesterday, he had not yet made a decision, indicated that he wanted to make a decision tonight, or last night or this morning. so that's what we're waiting for and i'm sure he' announce this evening of course and maybe there will be a bit of a heads up.
he's had these names for a while, you helped him craft them, he's talked about it during the campaign, what's he weighing now and why is anything still up in the air? >> well, he spent a pretty significant amount of time over the weekend asking questions, talking to people, thinking about this further. this is a really big decision for him. as you may remember, he spent a good part of his campaign talking about this issue, this was a big reason why people voted for him. he wants to get it right, like neil gorsuch. >> what does getting it right mean? this has been on his mind for a while, so what's still puzzling him? >> there are three things that he looks at. one is being extraordinarily well qualified and that's looking at the record. but also he wants someone who's going to be courageous, independent and fair. and a lot of that has to do with talking to people, who know these nominees, talking to people who have known them for years, getting a sense of how they have dealt with difficult
issues in their career. you really have to get to know somebody and that requires not only an interview, but thinking about what happened in that interview andal to lot people i profession and elsewhere. >> let's go through sma hardimap somewhat enamored with his biography, he's not from the ivy leagues, he paid for college by being a taxi driver. he was one of the runners up with neil gorsuch in the past. what are some of his strengths? >> first of all, he's been both an appeals judge and a trial judge for many years. he has many judicial decisions, he's demonstrated interpreting laws according to their text and their original meeting. he's very compelling as you mentioned, coming from a modest background and having worked his way through college, so i think he's someone who would appeal to many people in our country.vanaa
judge, worked for george w. bush, some have suggested that he has too long of a paper trail toe confirmed, your take on that? >> well, look, judge kavanagh's really one of the most distinguished jurists in the country, he's written over 300 opinions, he looks a lot like neil gorsuch in the sense that he cares before deeply about respecting and enforcing limits on government power. i think he's someone who, again, is very much like the gorsuch model, which the president's been focusing on. >> you helped him put the list together, who's your favorite? >> all the people the president is looking at are great. >> okay. >> it's very exciting. >> all right, thank you. enter leonard leo, thanks very much. cbs news will bring you a special report when president trump announces his nominee for the supreme court this evening. you can see it at 6:00 pacific time right here on cbs.
