Thai boys lost weight but generally well after cave ordeal

Thailand cave rescue operation boys hospital

The group will remain hospitalized for up to a week to ensure they are properly treated for all their health conditions.

One of the stories revolves around the heroic 14-year-old Wild Boars member, Adul Sam-on as he played a crucial role in communicating with some British rescue divers, thanks to his proficiency in English.

Thongchai said the soccer teammates are in a "very good mental state" and are showing no signs of stress.

Meanwhile, reports say the boys and the coach were sedated to stop them panicking during the risky rescue. Three boys from the last group saved have ear infections.

Rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters today that the entire operation would not have been possible without the unique skills that Harris brought to the mission, though he did not elaborate.

The search operation quickly turned into a rescue mission involving 90 divers - 50 foreign and 40 Thai - though some warned it could take months.

The group had entered the sprawling Tham Luang cave to go exploring after soccer practice on June 23, but monsoon rains soon filled the tight passageways, blocking their escape.

Former Tory treasurer Lord Ashcroft said the rescuers should get the highest civilian honour.

The multi-hour journey the team had to make towards the cave's mouth reportedly included navigating passageways as narrow as 40 centimetres while some of the boys did not know how to swim.

US President Donald Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May were among those congratulating the team on their safe return on social media.

The group became trapped in rising flood waters and were found nine days later emaciated and dishevelled on a muddy ledge, with water lapping ominously below.

The catchphrase "Hooyah" was trending on Twitter after Thai Navy SEALs used it repeatedly on their Facebook page as a rallying cry during the operation. But family members have seen at least some of the boys from behind a glass barrier, and after a period of time with no problems, the family members would be allowed closer while dressed in sterilized clothing.

"Of course he was extremely happy", Vaessen said.

Thai officials said Tuesday that before the cave can be opened to the public as a tourist attraction, extra safety precautions will have to be put in place due to the unsafe flooding that often affects the cave.

"In future, we have to monitor the entrance and exit to the cave".
