There Are Already Two Thai Cave Rescue Movies in the Works

A Thai government official says all 12 boys and their coach are doing well after their rescue from the Tham Luang cave.

Messages were sent to the Thai boys following the Thai cave rescue.

The boys and their 25-year-old coach were trapped after the Tham Luang cave complex was flooded.

The boys had earlier received an invitation to come watch the World Cup final in Russian Federation, but doctors said they could not go as they were still confined to their hospital beds.

"Some have had muscle infections, cold, flu, and some psychologists have been taking care of them to relieve stress", Health Ministry Inspector Lertvirairatanapong said. Some made the two-finger victory sign from their hospital beds.

In video shown at a press briefing, some of the parents were in tears as they looked through the glass. Their discovery immediately prompted discussions on how to get them out, with initial reports suggesting that the safest way to rescue the team was to wait out the rainy season, which lasts until October, and guide them out once the flooded tunnels had dried. All 12 boys are being kept away from family members to prevent them from catching infections.

The doctor said three of the boys were being treated for minor cases of pneumonia, but predicted most would be discharged after about a week. They will remain in hospital in the nearby city of Chiang Rai for a week, followed by a week's recuperation at home. With their physical health in good hands, the focus now turns to their mental health in the wake of a harrowing ordeal.

A Google search on Tuesday for the words "Thai cave rescue" revealed 359 million results.

Divers who took part in the operation said the boys were heavily sedated to avoid anxiety as they went through the dark, narrow, underwater passageways. Former Thai Navy SEAL Saman Gunan died last Friday while putting extra air tanks along the escape path.

On Wednesday night, provincial governor and rescue commander, Narongsak Osatanakorn, appeared to imply in a public address that citizenship is a possibility for the four.

"If there is strong political will from high-ranking state officers, the process could hasten, and the boys would be able to get Thai nationality in short period of time", she said.

"On behalf of the operation unit, we want to send our condolences to him and I do have to thank him a lot", he said.

He added that everyone worked together without concerns about race or religion, as the goal was to save the young football team.

Erik Brown, a Canadian who was one of 13 foreign expert divers in a core team of 18, said he was terrified as he swam, crawled and waded through the labyrinthine cave. When divers reached them later, they brought additional food, water and blankets.
