"In the end, cave rescue requires cavers and trained cave rescuers", he said, referencing the "distraction" of the offer by U.S. tech guru Elon Musk to evacuate the boys in a special pod.

The Pentagon downplayed the role of US troops, releasing little information about them until the boys and their coach began emerging from the cave system.

"I knew that we had a good team, with good support from the Thai authorities, the caving community and rescue organisations, so we had the best we could do to make a plan work". It was very rocky on both sides. And only a day later, a second movie was announced - but this one promising to circumvent that dreaded Hollywood tendency: whitewashing.

The wife of a Thai navy diver who died working to rescue a youth soccer team trapped for days in a flooded cave says she misses him dearly, but has urged the boys not to blame themselves for his death. As the cave begins to open up toward the entrance, dozens are seen crouching down and wading through gushing water to help carry the stretcher.

"We just helped them with the stretchers and got them through the rocks and passed them to the next team", Schnauer told Newshub.

Grainy footage of the moment Stanton and John Volanthen discovered the dishevelled and emaciated group has become the symbol of a remarkable survival story - that has already piqued the interest of Hollywood film producers.

"To be honest, I didn't notice anything about the boys, I was too anxious about where to put my feet and making sure I had a tight grip of the stretcher".


The Wild Boars football team which were stuck in Tham Luang Nang Non cave for 18 days after monsoon floods.

"If it rains, the water level goes up in two hours and we can't tell what the water is doing inside, so you thought you were doing a half-hour dive and now you are doing a two-hour dive, and do you have gas for that? Initially, we weren't certain they were all alive and as they were coming down I was counting them until I got to 13", said Mr Stanton.

Schnauer said he played "a small role" in the rescue efforts but the success of the operation showed what teamwork can achieve. "It was pretty impressive", he said.

"I'm glad it worked out", Volanthen told the woman.

"They are the ones who were responsible for their own morale and really their own safety and without them being in the state they were in, we couldn't have done anything".

"We are humbled to have been able to provide our expertise and experience to assist in this global operation led by the Thai government", they said. "I want to see the face of my child and embrace him and ask him how he feels and how he's doing".

"This victory goes to the heroes of the day, well done boys, you are so strong", French midfielder Paul Pogba tweeted after his team beat Belgium 1-0 on Tuesday to reach the final.
