12 rescued boys make victory sign from Thai hospital beds

12 rescued boys make victory sign from Thai hospital beds

But the huge worldwide rescue operation, including divers from the United Kingdom, got eight of the boys out on Sunday and Monday, with the last four and their coach coming out earlier on Tuesday.

The entire nation was glued to the media coverage of the rescue mission, and Thai authorities insisted they will not compromise on the safety of the trapped group.

It showed divers in headlights and scuba-gear carrying out the boys on heavy-duty stretchers.

He continued, "My wife actually grew up with the Thai Navy SEAL that died in the cave".

It shows divers preparing to plunge into murky brown waters likened to "cold coffee".

In one section of film shot in a dry part of the cave system, six rescuers grip the handles of a tough plastic cradle carrying their precious young cargo.

But doctors said the boys were being kept quarantined. They are then lowered down steep drops and pulled through terrifyingly narrow choke points.

"Some of them were asleep, some of them were wiggling their fingers". At other times, they endured dives lasting up to half an hour in the pitch-black waters. There were also doctors stationed throughout the journey to monitor the condition of the boys, AFP reported.

The trapped group in Thailand have now all been rescued from the cave, and are now recuperating in hospital.

Last week, FIFA said it would invite the group to Russian Federation 2018 as soon as they were rescued but the Thai authorities have told world football's governing body that the team will not be fit enough to travel to Sunday's game in Moscow.


Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong, a public health inspector, said Wednesday the 12 boys and coach rescued over the three previous days "took care of themselves well in the cave".

The members of the "Wild Boars" team, aged 11-16, had no experience in scuba diving, and the death of an ex-Navy SEAL who had helped install oxygen tanks in preparation for the rescue underscored the dangers of the mission.

The aim was to make each of the boys "tightly packaged" so divers could keep control of them and adjust their air supply as needed.

"We have been informed by the Football Association of Thailand that due to medical reasons, the boys will not be in a position to travel to Moscow for the World Cup final".

Their use meant that even if a boy panicked during the rescue and got water inside his mask, the pressure would expel it.

Anderson said: "We were extremely fortunate that the outcome was the way it was".

At the start of the seven-minute video, posted on Facebook just a day after the last of the 13 members of the group were successfully escorted out of the cave, two divers are seen adjusting their equipment while standing chest-deep in murky water. "I don't have any details about when they were being transferred from the cave", he said.

"This area will become a living museum, to show how the operation unfolded", the head of rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakorn, told a news conference, adding that an interactive database would be set up too.

But one man has emerged as a pivotal figure in the most unlikely of rescues - Australian diver and anaesthetist Richard "Harry" Harris.
