#Hooyah! Thais rejoice at success of dramatic cave rescue

Thailand football team won't attend World Cup final

The footage, released on the Thai Navy SEALs Facebook page, shows a complex operation with numerous divers - both foreign and Thai - using pulleys, ropes and rubber piping to haul members of the football team to safety.

The global bid to extract the team garnered attention from around the world after the team found themselves trapped on June 23 when they entered the cave after practice and were blocked by floodwaters.

In video shown at a press briefing, some of the parents were in tears as they looked through the glass.

"It might be because they were all together as a team, helping each other out", Thongchai Lertwilairattanapong, Inspector General of the Public Health Ministry told reporters, singling out their 25-year-old coach for keeping their spirits high.

The soccer teammates rescued from a flooded cave in Thailand lost weight during their 18-day ordeal and in the days before their discovery survived by drinking water dripping into their refuge, a health official said Wednesday.

"The first thing I want to do is hug him,"he said."All parents have the same feeling".

Two of the first group had a lung infection as well, and Thongchai said they would need medicine for seven days. "When I visited them, I also told them to be good citizens".

Divers embark on mission to rescue final 5 trapped in Thai cave
What happens when the players are out of the cave " The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems ", Jesada said. The first 4 boys who were rescued the other day, aged between 12 and 16, are now allowed to eat normal food once again.

The group remains in quarantine in a Chiang Rai hospital where one of the last batch of people to leave the cave has "lung conditions", he said.

The commander of the navy SEAL unit that oversaw the rescue, Rear Admiral Apakorn Yuukongkaew, hailed the worldwide effort.

The rescue mission which spanned days was a success after everyone was rescued.

The most risky part of the journey out of the labyrinthine cave system was the first kilometer, during which they were required to squeeze through a narrow flooded channel.

"Hooyah! Mission accomplished", read one headline, echoing the rallying cry of the SEAL unit. Former Thai Navy SEAL Saman Gunan died last Friday while putting extra air tanks along the escape path.

"FIFA would like to express its great joy at the news of the rescue of the 12 young footballers and their coach", said a statement released to Omnisport on Tuesday.

The hashtag #Hooyah was hugely popular on social media with people showing their support for the hundreds of rescuers, including divers from around the world, who helped to get the boys out. This means they will not be able to take up the invitation from Federation Internationale de Football Association to attend the Soccer World Cup final in Moscow.

It went viral, earning more than 9,000 retweets in less than a day.

The boys won't attend the World Cup final.

"Amazing news that all of the Thai kids are out of the cave safely!"
