PH lauds Thailand for daring cave rescue of boys soccer team

All 12 of the boys and their 25-year-old coach were brought to safety over the course of a three-day rescue, organised by Thai navy SEALs and an worldwide team of diving and caving experts, that ended on Tuesday.

All are recovering at a hospital in northern Thailand's Chiang Rai province, where video showed several of them in seemingly good spirits, waving and flashing peace signs to the camera.

The boys, ages 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach were fully rescued Tuesday after Thai navy SEALS completed the high-risk mission through rising floodwaters. Their discovery immediately prompted discussions on how to get them out, with initial reports suggesting that the safest way to rescue the team was to wait out the rainy season, which lasts until October, and guide them out once the flooded tunnels had dried.

"We are not heroes".

"We didn't want the children to walk because it is really tiring from Chamber Three to the cave mouth", Apakorn said.

The boys are now being treated in hospital and have been inundated with messages of support.

An honour guard holds up a picture of Samarn Kunan, 38, a former member of Thailand's elite navy SEAL unit who died working to save 12 boys and their soccer coach trapped inside a flooded cave.

It also involved about 90 divers in all, 50 of them from overseas, as well as medics, ambulance drivers, and helicopter pilots to take the boys straight to hospital in the town of Chiang Rai.

"They were making progress, but it was very little progress and they were exhausting themselves spending maybe five or six hours and covering 40 or 50 meters (yards)". "I've got a beer in my hand, I'm going to enjoy this, then I'm going to fly home and sit in a hammock for a few days". Some of the boys have already been visited by family. Authorities are anxious about the possibility of infections picked up in the cave.

But he denied they were knocked out for the miraculous rescue.

However, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha has said precautions would have to be implemented both inside and outside the cave to safeguard tourists. The result is the important thing.

They ended up stranded on a ledge in the darkness for nine days before they were found by two British divers on July 2.

Narongsak, giving details of the rescue, said falling oxygen levels inside the cave complex had added a sense of urgency.

The world has had its first look at the young footballers, and been given a glimpse of the remarkable rescue effort.

Thailand spent yesterday celebrating the successful mission.

"In the end, cave rescue requires cavers and trained cave rescuers", he said, referencing the "distraction" of the offer by USA tech guru Elon Musk to evacuate the boys in a special pod. "Many, many people. We are the first". "But it's really the global team I would like to focus on and the Thai SEALs". The footage, released by Thai officials Wednesday, shows eight of the boys sitting up in their hospital beds, clad in hospital gowns and face masks. "The world will not forget his kindness and all he did to save those boys". Players from France and England welcomed news of the rescue and sent their best wishes to the "Wild Boars" on Twitter.
