Thai Navy SEALs Share New Cave Rescue Video

The pumps inside the cave failed shortly after the last boy emerged

Indeed, it was almost another week before the first of the "Wild Boars" soccer team was brought out of the cave by elite divers who had, with Thai special forces, planned the rescue meticulously - but quickly, as more rains threatened.

When the boys entered the cave they each had a flashlight, they had one watch and one mobile phone with light until the batteries died.

Rescue divers told BBC News the boys were heavily sedated during the rescue to prevent them from panicking in the water-filled passageways, which were barely large enough to fit through.

Volanthen, an IT consultant in his 40s who is based in Bristol, and Stanton, a firefighter from Coventry who is in his 50s, reached the group nine days after they went missing.

The mission involved 13 foreign divers - around half of whom were British. We are so happy to hear that our son is out of the cave and to welcome him home.

"I think it is a miracle".

"To see all that heroic bravery in the cave, and to get all the divers out, it's just such a touching event and so personal to me", he said in a video on Twitter. filmed at the rescue site.

For now the plan is to "revive" an adjacent national park where hundreds of rescue workers and military personnel set up camp during the search and rescue.

"The boys got special full-face masks with oxygen circulating all the time. Be good people, be a force for good for your country", Rear Admiral Apakorn Yuukongkaew, commander of Thailand's navy SEALS unit, said in a message to them before boarding a flight from Chiang Rai.

"The section of cave we were in was very rocky and unstable".


"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)".

Even though pumps had brought down water levels significantly in recent days, the still-flooded chambers presented a daunting task for the teams.

Ivanhoe Pictures president John Penotti is negotiating with Thailand's Navy and government to develop the film.

Filmmaker Jon M. Chu, motivated by his film Crazy Rich Asians, isn't willing to let Hollywood whitewash the story about the Thai cave rescue mission.

Several studios have expressed interest in producing films based on the rescue, Deadline reported. Some of the boys have already been visited by family.

Kru told us she was so anxious when she learned Adun was trapped in the cave.

"What was really important was the coach and the boys all came together and discussed staying strong, having the will to live, having the will to survive", Anderson told The Associated Press in an interview on Wednesday.

UK football team Manchester United invited the team as well as their rescuers to the Old Trafford stadium next season.

The 12 boys and their soccer coach lost an average of 2 kg (4.4 lbs.) during their ordeal but were generally in good condition and showed no signs of stress, a senior health official said earlier.
