Thailand's Tham Luang cave to become museum to showcase boys' rescue

Thailand football team won't attend World Cup final

Some of them, wearing surgical masks, lay on their beds.

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

They are in good physical and mental health, say doctors, despite a harrowing 18 days inside the dank, dark cave before a risky rescue operation that was dubbed "Mission: Impossible".

Hospital Director Chaiwetch Thanapaisal said at a news conference that "everyone is strong in mind and heart", The Washington Post reported.

People celebrated on Tuesday as divers evacuated some of the 12 boys and their coach trapped at Tham Luang cave in Chiang Rai.

The new video from the navy does not include footage of the divers in the water with the boys, but it does show a team of people using pulleys, string and rubber tubes to haul a green, kayak-shaped stretcher out of a tight crevice.

As well as Ek, three of the boys who were trapped in the cave alongside him - Dul, Mark and Tee - are also stateless, the founder of the Wild Boars club Nopparat Khanthavong said.

The boys were reportedly sedated though there have been conflicting reports about the kind of medicine they received, with some saying they got anti-anxiety medication to keep them calm while Peeranarong said some of them had been fully sedated.

None in the third group - four boys and their 25-year-old coach - suffered hypothermia, according to Thongchai.

Divers free more cave boys on Day 2 of rescue mission
The boys, who were guided through the cave's twisting passages on Sunday, were said to be happy and undergoing medical checks. John Tangkitcharoenthawon, a local village chairman, was bursting with happiness over the successful rescue.

That led roughly 500,000 people to sign a petition calling for Trump to be banned from entering the Britain. These will focus on relations with Russian Federation , trade, Brexit and the Middle East.

Narongsak Osatanakorn, the official overseeing the rescue operation, said the boys should not be blamed for their near tragedy. He lauded the cooperation between Thai and global rescuers.

Onlookers at the junction in front of Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital watch and cheer as ambulances transport the last rescued schoolboys and their coach from a nearby helipad to the hospital.

"We will sing a song for him", she said.

But the young boy, who comes from a country where only one-third of the population speaks the local dialect, managed to help British rescuers in their operation to pull the young football team to safety.

Before the mission got underway on Sunday, rescue workers warned it would be a delicate operation. Two divers were helping each one make his way through very small passages filled with water. Relatively mild weather and a massive effort to pump out water created a window of opportunity.

But Chaiyananta, whose job was to help transfer the kids along between chambers two and three, said they were all "sleeping" on the harrowing journey out.

The group of 13 lost an average of 2 kilograms during their 17-day ordeal, but were generally doing well and showed no signs of stress, a senior health official said on Wednesday. They were all were rushed to the hospital mostly because of fear of infection.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha asked that the boys be given time to recover. A movie about the Thai rescue could be made for less, Medavoy said, because filming in Thailand is cheaper.

Scott's wife has been involved with planning the funeral for Saman Kunan, the former SEAL that died on July 6 while helping install oxygen tanks in preparation for the extraction.
