Thailand cave: Museum and movie in the works for Tham Luang

With Thai soccer team freed, Hollywood gears up for the movie

Rescuers are sent inside Tham Luang Nang Non cave to continue the rescue after the 12 boys and their soccer coach have been found alive in the cave where they've been missing for over a week after monsoon rains blocked the main entrance on July 03, 2018 in Chiang Rai, Thailand.

"The complexity, scale and risk of the operation was unprecedented", Glen McEwen, Australian Federal Police manager for Asia said at a press conference Wednesday.

The second group of boys rescued has been given approval to see their parents through glass, but the third group are still undergoing tests, he said.

"My job was to transfer them along", he said, adding the "boys were wrapped up in stretchers already when they were being transferred". Around five minutes into this video, the boy shown on screen has his eyes closed but appears conscious, bringing his right hand to his torso as people gather around him.

Narongsak said about half of the 13 foreign divers on the crack team of 18 who rescued the boys were British.

Doctors said that when the boys first arrived, one had a heartbeat that was too slow and some other had low counts of white blood cells, though those issues have since been resolved. "I have to praise the coach who took care of the footballers very well", Lertvirairatanapong said. "Most of the boys lost an average of two kg", Thongchai Lertwilairattanapong, an inspector for Thailand's health department, told reporters on Wednesday.

Although parents of the first eight boys rescued were able to see their sons, they had to stand six feet away from the children.

The complex mission for global and Thai divers to guide the boys and coach through the cave's flooded and tight passageways had riveted people worldwide.

"We will sing a song for him", she said.

Weenat Seesuk, an interior ministry official in Bangkok, confirmed that Ek and three of the rescued boys from the "Wild Boars" soccer team were stateless.

In a nationally televised address, Prayuth said that the government's efforts, the assistance of people in Thailand and overseas, and the outpouring of moral support made the mission a success.

At a school opposite the hospital in Chiang Rai where the boys are recovering, schoolchildren were in an excited, celebratory mood.

A Belgian rescue diver involved in the operation told Dutch broadcaster NOS that ultimately not much diving was required on the way out, because a lot of water had been pumped out of the cave.

"By the time the last diver was out the water was already at head level, nearly to the point where he needed an oxygen tank".

The boys were held close to divers and remained motionless for parts of the journey where they had to dive.

The diver who spoke to AFP said the boys were "groggy" but "breathing" when he helped to pull them out, while the BBC reported that according to divers, the boys were "heavily sedated to avoid anxiety". "At this time, now that the coach is out, just wait until he gives any statements and let's just wait altogether and find out at the same time", he said in an interview.

"The favourable outcome that has been achieved is nearly beyond our imagination when we first became involved", they said.
