Thai boys rescued from cave mourn hero diver

Thai boys rescued from cave mourn hero diver

He said the boys were "ecstatic" when the two divers appeared in front of the ledge where they had sought sanctuary, crowding to the front of the bank to greet their rescuers.

The 12 young footballers who were saved from a Thai cave after an worldwide rescue effort are mourning a former Navy Seal who died in the operation.

Thai authorities have only released partial information about the bold operation to free the team, heavily restricting access to the boys and their families. Officials are specifically anxious about any possible mental duress suffered by the team's coach, 25-year-old Ekkapol "Ake" Chantawong, ABC News reported.

Scores of volunteers and nearly 100 divers joined the effort to free them, which saw the boys sedated and carried out on military stretchers. Officials also released video of the rescue effort carried out by Thai Navy SEALs in the dark cave.

He was ordered the Knight Grand Cross (First Class) and given the medal of the Most Exalted Order of the White Elephant.

France play Croatia in the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday at 10 p.m. local time in Thailand.

They've been receiving medical treatment at a hospital in Chiang Rai.

The 12 boys who were rescued from a Thai cave with their soccer coach this week as part of an global effort appeared in a new video released Saturday to let the world know they're all right ― and to say thanks.

The 12 and their coach are recovering both physically and mentally and will be discharged from hospital on Thursday, July 19, Piyasakol told reporters.

Two British divers found them on July 2, squatting on a mound in a flooded chamber several kilometres inside the complex.

The search and rescue teams sedated and transported them in stretchers underwater while navigating the flooded sections towards the exit.

Doctors say they are in good health following a successful three-day operation which ended July 10 when teams of Navy Seals and worldwide cave diving experts hauled the last five members of the team to safety.

Last week, Manchester United invited the "Wild Boars" to watch a match at their Old Trafford ground and the Benfica football club offered a one-week stint at their training academy in Portugal.

About 4,000 volunteers were on Sunday taking part in a clean-up of the area around the Tham Luang cave.
