British diver: We are not heroes after Thai cave rescue

Elon Musk has dismissed criticism of his mini-submarine as

Rescuers are sent inside Tham Luang Nang Non cave to continue the rescue after the 12 boys and their soccer coach have been found alive in the cave where they've been missing for over a week after monsoon rains blocked the main entrance on July 03, 2018 in Chiang Rai, Thailand. Thai doctors said the boys each lost about 2 kilograms, or roughly 4.5 pounds, from the ordeal.

Teacher Phannee Tiyaprom at Ban Pa Moead School told AFP: "The first thing that comes to mind when I talk about him is his nice manner".

Narongsak Osatanakorn, the official overseeing the rescue operation, said the boys should not be blamed for their near tragedy.

But Chaiyananta, whose job was to help transfer the kids along between chambers two and three, said they were all "sleeping" on the harrowing journey out. "None of them show a level of stress that we should be concerned about". All 12 boys are being kept away from family members to prevent them from catching infections.

Thirteen global cave divers joined five Thai Navy SEALs in the risky rescue operation.

One particular actress seems to be getting the most mentions among users.

"Some have had muscle infections, cold, flu, and some psychologists have been taking care of them to relieve stress", Health Ministry Inspector Lertvirairatanapong said.

None in the third group - four boys and their 25-year-old coach - suffered hypothermia, according to Thongchai.

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.

Ryanair strike under way after talks with pilots fail
The airline said they have made alternative travel arrangements using both flights and ferries for nearly 5,000 passengers. Low-priced airline Ryanair has cancelled 30 flights on Thursday after talks with pilots ended without an agreement.

The complex mission for global and Thai divers to guide the boys and coach through the cave's flooded and tight passageways had riveted people worldwide. Relatively mild weather and a massive effort to pump out water created a window of opportunity.

Nopparat Kanthawong, the head coach of the Wild Boars team, told CNN that he did not know why the boys had gone into the cave.

But one man has emerged as a pivotal figure in the most unlikely of rescues - Australian diver and anaesthetist Richard "Harry" Harris. They were flown by helicopter to join their teammates in quarantine at the Chiang Rai hospital.

"We just needed them to know how to breathe and not panic in the water", he said. "This mission was successful because of cooperation from everyone", he said.

The group was trapped in the cave by rising water and rescued in a dramatic operation that captivated the world.

Each boy was accompanied underwater by two divers carrying their oxygen tanks for them, and guiding them through the murky tunnels. It took the divers about eight hours to get into the cave, reach the boys and bring them back out.

The SEALs commander, Rear Adm. Apakorn Youkongkae, said the boys' coach, Ekkapol Chantawong, told SEALs the order the boys should be rescued in. "He gives a "wai" gesture to every teacher he walks past, every time".

Scott, who's married to a Thai woman and spends three months a year in Thailand, said they are not pressing people over the interviews.
