Thailand cave rescue boys thank hero divers
The soccer coach and the twelve thai boys are recovering well from their unpleasant experience
CHIANG RAI: The soccer coach and the twelve thai boys are recovering well from their unpleasant experience.
The coach and the last team member of “Wild Boars”, were rescued from the Tham Luang cave on Tuesday night. The boys and their coach have been admitted in the hospital since then.
On saturday, a video played at a news conference in which they looked good, sitting up in bed.
A 14 year old nicknamed Note said, “I am in good health now. Thanks for saving me.”
On June 23, after soccer practice, the coach and the boys decided to explore the cavern complex for about an hour. But they were trapped due to flooded tunnels due to rain.
On July 2, two British divers found them in a flooded chamber which is several kilometers inside the complex.
Over a period of three days, all of them were rescued safely which was organised by Thai navy SEALs along with an international team of cave diving experts.
Piyasoki told reporters that some of them had pneumonia when brought out but they were recovering and will be discharged from hospital in the northern town of Chiang Rai on Thursday.
“I want to have crispy pork rice and barbecue pork rice,” a 15 year old Pipat Photi said in the video.
Duangpetch Promtep, “I want pork knuckle rice, Thank you for all the moral support.”
“Everyone has worked well together to bring the children out. We worked well together then and we should work well together now so the children can recover physically and mentally as they grow up. We need to prepare both the children and their families for the attention they will receive when they come out,” said Piyasakol.
He cautioned the relatives of the boys no to give interviews to media which, he fears, may give a negative impact on their mental health.
Two production companies are all set to retell this story in Hollywood about the boys and their rescue.
