Thai cave rescue: All 12 boys and their coach rescued

Doctors have said the 12 boys and their 25-year-old coach are in a "good condition" but will be staying in bed and in quarantine for now. He lauded the cooperation between Thai and global rescuers.

A video of the boys in hospital was shown at the news conference.

"The big heroes in this are the children and the four Thai Navy SEALS who were looking after them".

The four Thai Navy Seals were the last to leave the cave on Tuesday evening.

Former Navy seal Chaiyananta Peeranarong said: "Some of them were asleep, and some of them were wiggling their fingers, kind of groggy - but they were breathing".

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

Thailand's junta chief told reporters on Tuesday that the group had been given a "minor tranquiliser" to help calm their nerves.

The soccer teammates rescued from a flooded cave in Thailand lost weight during their 18-day ordeal and in the days before their discovery survived by drinking water dripping into their refuge, a health official said Wednesday.

The father of a cave-diving Australian doctor died on Wednesday, shortly after his son played a key role in rescuing a boys' soccer team trapped in a cave for two weeks in northern Thailand.

The team had to handle the total darkness of the cave, without any awareness of time or of the massive search efforts to find them.

People celebrated on Tuesday as divers evacuated some of the 12 boys and their coach trapped at Tham Luang cave in Chiang Rai.

The rescue received blanket coverage in Thai media with newspapers The Nation running the headline "Hooyah!"

"The boys are physically and mentally fit to come out".

The group was trapped in the cave on June 23, when they were exploring it after a soccer practice session and it became flooded by monsoon rains.

"This is clearly a time of grief for the Harris family, magnified by the physical and emotional demands of being part of this week's highly complex and ultimately successful rescue operation", Pearce told ABC News.

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

"They are the toughest blokes and kids I've ever had the privilege to meet", he said. Jedsada said they were uncertain what type of infections the boys could face "because we have never experienced this kind of issue from a deep cave".

But they were prodded into the risky task of bringing the team through submerged chambers and claustrophobic passages as oxygen levels in the cave plummeted and rains menaced.

Federation Internationale de Football Association also expressed condolences to the family of a Thai Navy SEAL who died after running out of oxygen during the rescue operation on Friday.
