The 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach were rescued from a flooded cave. A video has been released showing the recoverers in the hospital beds, talking with the nurses and making the victory sign.
Here is the video
It can be seen in the video that the boys are kept in an isolated ward with beds having white sheets. They are wearing the green colored surgical mask. The youngest boy seemed to be sleeping in the video while the rest are chatting with each other. Their faces are unclear due to the surgical mask.
Director of the Chiang Rai Prachanukroh hospital Chaiwetch Thanapaisal informed that “everyone is strong in mind and heart”.
He further said that they will be monitored in the hospital for a week and then kept on bed rest at home for a month. Three of the rescued boys do have slight lung infections.
The Thai boys and coach group went exploring to the Tham Luang cave after their soccer practice but got stuck due to monsoon rain. The passageways in the cave got blocked, and they couldn’t escape. They were stuck there for almost three weeks. Now they all have been rescued and are safe and sound.
Narongsak Osatanakorn, the official overseeing the rescue operation said, “The situation went beyond just being a rescue mission and became a symbol of unity among mankind. Everyone worked together without discrimination of race or religion as the ultimate goal was to save the youth football team.”
