Thai boys recuperate in hospital

Detailed account reveals how the rescue of 12 boys and their football coach nearly became a disaster.

Two days after the last of the Wild Boars football team were successfully extracted from the Tham Luang cave system, the government said that it would find ways to provide passports to the four who live in northern Thailand without formal documentation.

In a letter written to the 25-year-old coach while he and the 12 members of the Wild Boar soccer team were still trapped in the cave, parents thanked him for taking care of their children. What we do is very calculating, very calm.

'We realised that this would make an incredibly inspiring movie, ' Mr Scott said.

An American involved in the operation described the perilous zero-visibility dives that brought the boys out safely as a "once in a lifetime rescue".

They spent nine days in darkness until two British divers found them, before their drawn-out rescue that captivated global attention.

They were taken by helicopter to a hospital about 70 km (45 miles) away to join their team mates in quarantine for the time being.

"Everyone is strong in mind and heart", he said at a news conference of officials involved in the high-risk rescue effort.

Closer to home, Chiang Rai locals rejoiced at the odds-upsetting rescue bid.

In video shown at a press briefing, some of the parents were in tears as they looked through the glass. Doctors were anxious about potential infections the children could have contracted in the cave.

He was the last man out of the cave Tuesday but emerged to tragedy, learning of his father's death shortly after the rescue had completed.

Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said that safety measures will need to be put in place inside and outside the cave. "The best way is not to bother them and let them study".

The team and coach had ventured into the complex after a practice but became trapped when heavy rains flooded the way they'd come in. "We wish them a speedy recovery". They are then lowered down steep drops and pulled through terrifyingly narrow choke points.

A former member of Thailand's navy SEAL unit died during a mission in the cave on Friday.

Yesterday, the Australian contingent - made up of military personnel and Australian Federal Police divers - revealed they moved more than 20 tonnes of equipment - including oxygen tanks to make the hours-long trek - through the dark tunnels to facilitate the rescue operation. "This mission was successful because of cooperation from everyone", he said. The navy has a motto: 'We don't abandon the people'. They were found by a pair of British divers almost 10 days later, huddled on a small, dry shelf just above the water, smiling with relief but visibly skinny.
