The heroes of the Thai cave rescue

The heroes of the Thai cave rescue

They are in quarantine, so their parents are only allowed to see their children through a glass window.

Hospital footage of the children was released during a press conference held by the rescue chief, acting Chiang Rai Governor Narongsak Osottanakorn, who has praised the children as "heroes".

The boys, aged between 11 and 16, as well as their 25-year-old coach, were stranded on a ledge in the flooded Tham Luang Nang Non caves in the Chiang Rai region.

The complex, three-day rescue saw four boys emerge on Sunday, four on Monday, and the final four boys plus their coach on Tuesday.

Doctors said that when the boys first arrived, one had a heartbeat that was too slow and some other had low counts of white blood cells, though those issues have since been resolved.

Even so, all need to be monitored in the hospital for seven days and then rest at home for another 30 days, he said.

The head of a Thai navy SEAL diving team that helped lead 12 boys and their soccer coach through a flooded cave complex to safety urged the boys on Thursday to "be a force for good" as the dramatic operation wound to a close.

The team is now being treated at a nearby hospital. Michael Scott (no, not that one), managing partner of Pure Flix, revealed the decision was a no-brainer, considering he's a part-time Thai resident and a family friend of Sgt. Saman Kunan, the volunteer rescuer who tragically lost his life on July 6.

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

But after Centre Court was left two-thirds empty during England's quarter-final match against Sweden last week, the ban has been negotiated and lifted.

"The first thing I want to do is hug him,"he said."All parents have the same feeling".

The decision, a response to the global outpouring of love and support during the hard operation to rescue the boys, draws attention to the large numbers of stateless people living in Thailand, especially in its border regions.

The rescue mission which spanned days was a success after everyone was rescued. They were all were rushed to the hospital mostly because of fear of infection.

Divers who took part in the operation said the boys were heavily sedated to avoid anxiety as they went through the dark, narrow, underwater passageways.

Thai doctors have said they did not know what type of unusual illnesses the boys may have picked up in the cave.

"As you can imagine from what's been in the media all week it is not a holiday that Harry has been on", Pearce said.

Police officers took photographs of each other at the massive cave entrance, as pumps continued to suck out huge volumes of water.

"We had to set up rope systems and high-lines to be able to safely put them in a harness and bring them across large open areas so they wouldn't have to go all the way down", he said. Players from France and England welcomed news of the rescue and sent their best wishes to the "Wild Boars" on Twitter.
