The main pump draining water from the Tham Luang cave complex stopped working shortly after the last member of the soccer team was saved.
Some 100 rescue workers were still in the flooded cave when it happened, packing up equipment from a triumphant rescue.
Three people said they heard screams and a flurry of headlights as rescuers scrambled to safety away from the rising water.
