Thailand cave rescue: 12 boys and their football coach all saved

By: Mirror

All 12 boys and their football coach trapped in a cave in Thailand have been freed following a huge rescue operation.

There was a huge applause at the cave rescue site when the news was announced to waiting family, friends and volunteers.

The operation has been an international flavour with 18 countries working together to save the football team with the nickname 'the Wild Boars'.

As well as the players and their 25-year-old coach, there remains four Thai Navy SEALs including a medic who will now be extracted.

Officials say the boys rescued from the Tham Luang cave network so far are in good health overall however two are believed to have been diagnosed with pneumonia.

Doctors says they are unlikely to be well enough to accept FIFA's invitation to watch World Cup Final in Russia on Sunday.

There has been speculation the children have been drugged to help them in the transfer to hospital.

According to an interview translated by the Guardian, the Prime Minister slammed such reports, saying they had been given anti-anxiety medication, 'the same medication he takes to help him relax when he shoots guns'.

The boys who were rescued on Sunday and Monday are said to be hungry and have asked for bread with chocolate topping for breakfast - despite being told they should only have bland foods.

The final push for rescue teams was 'challenging' because of the risk of more rain percolating through cave walls.

It had been thought today’s final rescue mission to extract the last four boys and their football coach would take longer than the previous two days because, in addition, three Thai Navy SEALS and a Thai army medic who have stayed with the boys since they were found will also come out.

The rescued boys are still being quarantined from their parents because of the risk of infection and would likely be kept in hospital for a week to undergo tests, officials said.

Their relieved parents were forced to wear surgical robes and masks and were not allowed to hug their sons to prevent infection when visiting them in hospital last night.

The first eight to be evacuated have all been given inoculations against rabies and tetanus, and are all being treated with antibiotics amid fears they may have been bitten by disease-carrying bats inside the huge underground network.

There are also fears they could have contracted a 'cave disease'.

Thailand’s prime minister said on Tuesday extra precautions would have be implemented to safeguard tourists at the cave.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha warned that safety measures would have to be put in place inside and outside the cave.

“In future, we have to monitor the entrance and exit to the cave. This cave has become world famous… we have to install more lights inside the cave and put up signs,” Prayuth told reporters in Bangkok.

“It’s a dangerous cave,” said Prayuth, adding that the cave would be closed to the public for a while until “everything is in order”. He did not elaborate.
