All 12 boys and coach safe after Thailand cave rescue

Divers rescue fifth boy from flooded Thailand cave

Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, speaking Tuesday before the final rescue was completed, said the boys were given an anti-anxiety medication to help with their perilous removal from the cave. After they were found on July 2, officials cautioned it could take some time to get them out, but authorities made a decision to act with heavy rains forecast to hit the region. Thinking about how they've been kept in a small cave for two weeks, they haven't seen their mums. People on the street cheered and clapped when ambulances ferrying them on the last leg of their journey from the cave arrived at a hospital in Chiang Rai city. Jesada said they were uncertain what type of infections the boys could face "because we have never experienced this kind of issue from a deep cave".

Led by 13 "world class" divers, the boys were accompanied by two adults each, with others stationed in junctions along the way.

It's unclear whether Thai officials will opt to use Musk's submarine to rescue the four remaining boys and their soccer coach.

Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the rescued boys and some of their parents said they had not been told who had been brought out.

The youngsters and their coach had been stuck in the cave since 23 June, after rising water levels trapped within the Tham Luang Nang Non cave complex in Chiang Rai.

Narongsak said the rescued boys had not been identified out of respect for the families whose sons were still trapped. "But when I saw that he was alive and breathing, it felt very good".

Wassana Saebaew lives in Myanmar and each day crosses the border to go to school in Mae Sai, Thailand.

In recent days, the 15-year-old and her classmates have found it increasingly tough to concentrate on their studies and upcoming exams. But they also warned heavy rain could hamper their efforts.

Despite all the risks associated with the rescue, she says she never had any doubt that the boys would all make it out.

This was because the boys were malnourished and weak, and doctors could be anxious that they could be susceptible to germs spread by family members or other visitors, said Dr W Ian Lipkin, a Columbia University infectious diseases expert. They were immediately sent for a medical examination, but there has been no news about their condition.
