The rescue of Thailand's trapped football team continues to go better than expected. 

Another four boys have made it out safe and well from Thailand's flooded cave.

Rescuers guided the boys out overnight.

In total, eight members of the stranded football team have been rescued, with five more still trapped underground.

One News reporter Kimberlee Downs told Tim Dower all eight are doing relatively well.

"Officials are saying they seem to be in strong and safe condition, good condition considering all they have been through."

The rescue of the remaining team members has been suspended for the night.
