Thailand cave rescue: First pics of boys in hospital

Thai cave survivors unable to attend World Cup final says FIFA

The new video from the navy does not include footage of the divers in the water with the boys, but it does show a team of people using pulleys, string and rubber tubes to haul a green, kayak-shaped stretcher out of a tight crevice.

The perilous plight of 12 Thai youth soccer players and their coach trapped in a flooded cave for more than two weeks concluded with smiles on Tuesday when divers pulled the last of five remaining team members from the darkness.

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

Another four were rescued on Monday and the last four boys and the coach were brought out on Tuesday.

Hospital director Chaiwetch Thanapaisal told a news conference that the boys would have to stay in hospital for up to 10 days.

A Thai government official says all 12 boys and their coach are doing well after their rescue from the Tham Luang cave.

He said the children hadn't eaten any food in the nine days before they were found, and drank murky water from inside the cave, which saved them.

The first images have been released of the Thai soccer team recovering in the hospital after being rescued from a cave. "You have to ensure when you go in you have a way out", Master Sergeant Anderson said.

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

Both songs were co-written and co-produced by Gambino and Ludwig Goransson, the team behind the chart-topping " This Is America ". Both " Summertime Magic " and " Feels Like Summer " were shared on Spotify under the title Summer Pack .

More than 90 divers helped with the rescue as well as many other volunteers.

The children aged from 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach, ventured into the cave in Thailand's mountainous north on June 23 after football practice and got trapped when heavy rains caused flooding that forced them to take shelter on a muddy ledge.

"We are humbled to have been able to provide our expertise and experience to assist in this global operation led by the Thai government".

"This area will become a living museum, to show how the operation unfolded", Osottanakorn said.

The method was extremely risky, but dwindling oxygen levels in the cave and fears of more monsoon rains to come made a decision urgent.

Speaking earlier Wednesday, health ministry inspector Tongchai Lertvirairatanapong said the boys were in "good condition", despite each losing an average of two kilograms (4.4 pounds) in weight during their time in the cave. We wish you the best for this very tough time. Relatively mild weather and a massive effort to pump out water created a window of opportunity. Before their discovery, they survived by drinking water dripping into their cramped refuge.

However, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha has said precautions would have to be implemented both inside and outside the cave to safeguard tourists.

With the World Cup reaching its climax, Federation Internationale de Football Association invited the Wild Boars to attend Sunday's final in Moscow between France and the victor of Wednesday's England-Croatia match.
