In this photo taken from video released by Thailand government, family members watch the rescued boys through a window at the Chiang Rai hospital in northern Thailand, Wednesday, July 11, 2018.

The complex, three-day rescue saw four boys emerge on Sunday, four on Monday, and the final four boys plus their coach on Tuesday. The footage, released by Thai officials Wednesday, shows eight of the boys sitting up in their hospital beds, clad in hospital gowns and face masks.

Thongchai Lertwilairattanapong, an inspector for Thailand's health department, briefed reporters on the status of the Wild Boars football team on Wednesday. He lauded the cooperation between Thai and global rescuers. Former Thai Navy SEAL Saman Gunan died last Friday while putting extra air tanks along the escape path.

"My job was to transfer them along ... the boys were wrapped up in stretchers already when they were being transferred".

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.

Junta leader Prayut Chan-O-Cha on Tuesday said the boys had been given a "minor tranquilliser" to prevent anxiety during the complex extraction bid.

Divers extracted the team in a high-risk mission inside the flooded passageways.

Three hours after the final five were rescued, pumping machinery failed and the water level rose dramatically. "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 the boys before boarding a flight from Chiang Rai.

"To not receive food, we can still survive for many months, but what's necessary is water, which the cave has, and around this time there's a lot in the cave, and they chose clean water to drink", he said.

Thailand spent yesterday celebrating the successful mission.

"Don't need to worry about their physical health and even more so for their mental health", said Chaiwetch Thanapaisal, director of Chiang Rai Prachanukroh Hospital.

Meanwhile, Manchester United invited the boys to game at their home stadium Old Trafford next season while Portugese team Benfica invited the Wild Boars to an expenses-paid week at its training academy.

The boys were held close to the divers and remained motionless for parts of the journey where they had to dive.

"We will sing a song for him", she said.

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