Incredible operation in pictures: All 12 boys, coach rescued from Thailand cave

Brother Ekk: Thai coach who put players first right to the end

The cave complex in northern Thailand where 12 boys and their football coach were trapped for more than two weeks is set to be turned into a museum.

MAE SAI, Thailand As ecstatic relatives watched and waved from behind a glass barrier, the 12 boys and their soccer coach rescued from deep within a flooded cave in Thailand made the V-for-Victory sign today from their beds in a hospital isolation ward where they are recovering from the 18-day ordeal.

One of the boys, 11-year-old Chanin "Titan" Wiboonrungrueng, who is the youngest, looked asleep under a crisp white sheet. The group entered the cave June 23 but flooding cut off the exit.

They were found dishevelled and emaciated but alive on a muddy ledge 4km inside the cave nine days after they went missing.

Dr Harris was supposed to be on holiday at the time of the rescue, but cancelled it to come to the aid of the Wild Boars football team.

Adisak Wongsukchan told Al Jazeera he gave his 14-year-old son Nong Bew a big thumbs up when he first saw him in hospital.

"The important thing is. personal space", Prayuth told reporters.

"We don't see the children as at fault or as heroes".

The complex, high-risk mission for global and Thai divers to guide the boys and coach through the cave's flooded and tight passageways had riveted people worldwide.

A Thai navy SEAL diver told AFP news agency the boys were sleeping or partially conscious as they were carried out of the cave. That's good news for the boys who had said they were looking forward to fried rice with basil.

The group was led out in three batches by a team of 13 worldwide divers flanked by Thai Navy Seals, who greeted each successful rescue with a "Hooyah" on their Facebook page.

First, filmmakers need to secure the rights from each of the boys' families, the coach, and any rescuers they want to portray in order to get their firsthand accounts of what happened.

"Pure Flix joins the rest of the world in thanking God for answering prayers for the successful rescue of those trapped in the cave in Thailand", the company said in a statement.

"It was mostly a matter of clambering through mud, which was very tough", Ben Reymenants said.

None of the children could previously swim and it is clear from the footage that rescuers had been too anxious that they might panic underwater to risk trusting them to simply scuba dive out of the flooded cave system. In another video, released by the government of Thailand on Wednesday, the boys seem energetic and healthy.

Despite the online brickbats, Ivanhoe Pictures' John M. Chu, who directed upcoming film "Crazy Rich Asians", said he would be sensitive to the diversity in the story.

The authorities had previously denied the children were drugged but Prayut Chan-o-Cha confirmed that they had been given an anxiolytic "to make them not excited, not stressed".

They are malnourished and weak, and doctors are anxious that they could be susceptible to germs spread by family members or other visitors, Dr. W. Ian Lipkin, a Columbia University infectious diseases expert, says.
