'Hooyah! Mission accomplished' greets Thai boys rescued from cave

Thailand's Tham Luang cave complex

Officials there reported the first four rescued can now stand up and walk, but they can't go far.

"We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what". So, what's next for the Wild Boar? "Everyone is safe", the SEALs wrote on Facebook.

The disappearance, discovery and rescue of the Wild Boars soccer team has gripped people all over the world.

Four people were then rescued from the caves in the first rescue stage, before being taken straight to hospital.

The Navy SEALs announced the successful rescue result on Tuesday, completing an astonishing against-the-odds rescue mission that has captivated the world. The cave where the group went missing stretches nearly ten kilometers, it has several entrances and exits, as well as large chambers, where the group members found shelter from the rising waters caused by a rainy season downpour.

Monsoon rains have started falling again in Thailand. The water level has reached the lowest it has been in ten days.

Cave-diving experts had warned diving the youngsters out was potentially too risky. None of the boys had ever dived before.

"Harry was aware of that as it happened, and, as most of you know, that was after they'd all come out of the cave successfully".


Adelaide anaesthetist and underwater cave explorer Richard Harris - known as Harry - is understood to have been the last person to leave the cave overnight, having played a crucial role in the complex mission to save the young boys and their coach.

Chiang Rai Gov.Narongsak Osatanakorn said Tuesday's rescue operation began at 10.08 a.m. and involves 19 divers. The group would have to swim through dark, narrow passageways, wearing scuba gear.

While the boys and their coach are now recovering in hospital, the correspondence revealed just how perilous the mission was even in the final stages.

According to a document released by the Thai authorities, the plan was that two divers would accompany each of the boys, who were being brought out in groups.

She is understood to have become disoriented during the tragic 2011 mission in South Australia and ran out of air while trying to work out how to navigate a hard section of the cave.

Rescuers worked in three stages, rescuing the first group of four boys in a total of nine hours on Sunday. "Everyone is in high spirits and is happy to get out".

It was a "miracle" they had survived and an even greater one that the rescue team, including worldwide caving experts, were able to hatch a plan to get them out alive. Each team member has to spend time in isolation for fear of spreading infection; health officials expect all of them to be in the hospital for at least a week.

But News Corp reports mission commander and former Chiang Rai province governor Narongsak Osottanakorn said the rescue squad would not need the mini-submarine as it was "not practical". But he added they can not yet have the spicy treats that many Thais like to eat.
