Thailand cave rescue Brit diver says: 'We are not heroes'

Revealed: The drug that allowed Thailand boys to survive rescue mission

They are set to undergo in-depth mental health evaluations, but CBS reports that they are showing few signs of stress.

The boys were held close to divers and remained motionless for parts of the journey where they had to dive.

Mr Volanthen, an IT consultant based in Bristol but who grew up in Brighton, was one of the first rescuers to discover the group huddled in the darkness of the Luang Nang Non Cave.

The four boys and soccer coach brought out on Tuesday on the final day of an all-out three-day push to save all of them had recovered more quickly than the boys rescued on Sunday and Monday, Chaiwetch said.

The boys were malnourished and weak, and doctors are probably anxious that they could be susceptible to germs spread by family members or other visitors, said Dr W Ian Lipkin, a Columbia University infectious diseases expert. The boys are expected to be released within seven days barring complications. Some have been able to see the boys through a glass panel, others have been allowed closer, but had to wear protective suits and stand two meters away.

The treacherous conditions in the cave system were laid bare in the video released by Thai navy Seals yesterday.

Thailand's prime minister, Prayuth Chan-o-cha, said the boys were given anti-anxiety medication to help with their rescue.

'Hooyah!' Tears flow, horns honk after Thai cave boys rescued
Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha visited the cave to inspect the rescue operation, with navy rescuers giving him a rousing cheer. The rescue chief said Tuesday's intricate and high-risk operation began just after 10am and involves 19 divers.

Meanwhile Thailand's prime minister Prayuth Chan-ocha has thanked people involved in the rescue, saying the government's efforts, the assistance of people in Thailand and overseas, and the outpouring of moral support made the mission a success. "For SEALs, this is what we were trained for".

Contrary to the idea that the children would swim out, they appear to be motionless in the video as they are passed along a chain of rescuers including Thai navy personnel and volunteers from around the world.

The remarkable mission that claimed the life of one rescue diver but defied the odds otherwise found all 13 members of the Wild Boars soccer team pulled from Tham Luang Cave in relative good health.

The rescue has dominated front-page headlines in Thailand and beyond for days. "In a way, it boost [ed] the spirit of [Thai] Navy SEALs and people around the country also [felt] that this mission really [had] to be accomplished because we [didn't] want to see the death of the ex-Navy SEAL Saman Gunan [go to] waste", she said. "Is there anyone who can help with an address?"

The fate of the boys has even resonated as far as Russian Federation, where soccer's World Cup is reaching its final stages. Players from France and England welcomed news of the rescue and sent their best wishes to the "Wild Boars" on Twitter.

"This victory goes to the heroes of the day, well done boys, you are so strong", French midfielder Paul Pogba tweeted after his team beat Belgium 1-0 on Tuesday to reach the final. "Amazing news that all of the Thai kids are out of the cave safely!"

"We have never experienced this kind of issue from a deep cave", and doctors are running a battery of tests on the boys, Mr Jedsada said.
