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

With Thai soccer team freed, Hollywood gears up for the movie

First images emerge of boys rescued from Thailand cave

Adisak Wongsukchan, the father of 14-year-old Akarat Wongsukchan who was rescued on Monday, said all he wants to do now is give his boy a hug.

The worldwide operation saw all 12 boys on the Thai football team rescued safely, including Mr Chanatwong, which eventually ended on Tuesday.

Musk suggests a series of tubes could be sent through the cave network and inflated, creating a tunnel for the team to travel through without needing to scuba dive.

Officials said the plight of the stranded boys and the heroic and successful multi-national efforts to free them has put the relatively unexplored cave squarely on the map.

On Tuesday, Musk posts photos on his Twitter account from inside the cave.

They were found by British divers after nine days, and were eventually rescued days after in an operation that involved dozens of divers and hundreds of other rescue workers.

"Although his technology is good and sophisticated, it's not practical for this mission", the rescue chief said.

"This area will become a living museum, to show how the operation unfolded", the head of rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakorn, told a news conference on Wednesday. Three of the boys are being treated for minor lung infections.

"Members of the Thai navy SEAL team, who were among the first searchers to penetrate the watery depth of Tham Luang Nang Non cave and the last divers out, flew to their base at Sattahip on the Gulf of Thailand, where they received a heroes" welcome.

Narongsak said worldwide rescuers led the final phase of the unsafe mission.

Having completed this section, the boys were then handed over to separate, specialist rescue teams, who helped them through the remainder of the cave, much of which they could wade through.

The rescue was fraught with danger, a point underscored last Friday (June 6) by the death of a retired Thai Navy SEAL diver as he ran out of air in the flooded cave complex.

"We had a little bit of hope that they might still be alive but we had to do it, we just had to move forward", Rear Adm Arpakorn Yuukongkaew said. "Everyone worked together without discrimination of race or religion as the ultimate goal was to save the youth football team".

"To not receive food, we can still survive for many months, but what's necessary is water, which the cave has, and around this time there's a lot in the cave, and they chose clean water to drink", he said.
