Nurses chatted with them and the boys responded with the customary Thai sign of respect - hands pressed together while bowing the head.

The dramatic rescue of a Thai boys soccer team and their coach from a flooded cave complex this week transfixed news viewers around the world for more than two weeks, and the story is already headed for a retelling by Hollywood.

"Everyone is strong in mind and heart".

Thais are calling for the "stateless" soccer coach and three of the 12 boys rescued from a flooded cave to be made citizens of Thailand.

A screen grab shows boys rescued from the Thai cave wearing mask and resting in a hospital in Chiang Rai, Thailand from a July 11, 2018 handout video. Three boys from the last group saved have ear infections.

Having completed this section, the boys were then handed over to separate, specialist rescue teams, who helped them through the remainder of the cave, much of which they could wade through.

"I want to hug him. and I want to tell him that I'm happy", he said.

Ek is a member of the Tai Lue minority, one of several groups whose people have over generations moved around the region, across open borders in remote hills between southern China, Myanmar and Laos, and into northern Thailand's ethnic patchwork of communities. Volanthen received a standing ovation as part of a hero's send-off at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport on Wednesday as they left the country. The other five on the team were Thai navy SEAL divers.

"The situation went beyond just being a rescue mission and became a symbol of unity among mankind", he said.

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. Two divers were helping each one make his way through very small passages filled with water. And the confidence of the diving team, and expertise specific to the cave, grew after its first successful mission Sunday. That's good news for the boys who had said they were looking forward to fried rice with basil. They survived the nine days before they were found by drinking water dripping from the cave walls, officials said.

While most users did not state why they picked on Scarlett Johannson, the reason behind it is likely due to her controversial lead role in 2017 film The Ghost in The Shell, which is based on the Japenese Manga of the same name.

But Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said on Tuesday extra precautions would have be implemented both inside and outside the cave to safeguard tourists.
