Thai boys sedated, stretchered from cave in dramatic rescue

Members of the Thai navy SEAL team who were among the first searchers to penetrate the watery depth of Tham Luang Nang Non cave and the last divers out flew Thursday to their base at Sattahip on the Gulf of Thailand, where they received a heroes' welcome. The third and final group, including the soccer team's 25-year-old coach, who were all evacuated Tuesday, are taking antibiotics and at least some had lung infections.

He realised, too, that if reaching the boys had been so complicated and perilous, extracting them would be even harder.

They were found 10 days later, huddled on a small, dry shelf just above the water, and divers and other global rescuers plotted the complex mission to rescue the team before more rain came. "They talked to the boys far away from them, about 2 meters [6.5 feet]", Thongchai said.

The rescue sparked jubilation with Thais heaping praise on the rescue team of foreign and local divers as the triumphant tagline "Hooyah" pinballed across social media.

The first boys rescued on Sunday have been allowed to see their relatives through a glass partition and speak to them on a telephone line. He said they survived by drinking clean water dripping into the cave.

They were also seen sitting cheerfully in their hospital beds, where they are being kept in isolation until doctors are sure they did not pick up any nasty diseases during more than two weeks in the dark.

"If it rains, the water level goes up in two hours and we can't tell what the water is doing inside, so you thought you were doing a half-hour dive and now you are doing a two-hour dive, and do you have gas for that?"

Messages were sent to the Thai boys following the Thai cave rescue. They would then need to recuperate at home for 30 days, he said.

It would also be a boon to Russian Federation and its leader, Vladimir Putin , whom Trump will meet on Monday in Helsinki. Trump has described the spending situation as "disproportionate and not fair to the taxpayers of the United States".

The most risky part of the journey out of the labyrinthine cave system was the first kilometer, during which they were required to squeeze through a narrow flooded channel.

Thailand spent yesterday celebrating the successful mission. The navy has a motto: 'We don't abandon the people'.

Variety reported that Jon will team up with Ivanhoe Pictures to work on the film.

The rescue has dominated front-page headlines in Thailand and beyond for days.

The fate of the boys has even resonated as far as Russian Federation, where soccer's World Cup is reaching its final stages. One of the boys lies on it covered in a metallic, reflective material. Coach Ekaphol Chantawong and players Pornchai Kamluang, Adul Sam-on and Mongkol Boonpiam are from northern Thailand, near the border of Myanmar and are considered stateless under Thai law, according to The Guardian.

"Amazing news that all of the Thai kids are out of the cave safely!"

Isn't that wonderful? The Thai rescue mission has taught us one thing.
