Boys Rescued from Thai Cave in Good Health
He credited Australian medic and diver Dr. Richard "Harry" Harris and three Thai Navy SEALs for staying with the boys and coach deep in the cave and keeping them calm and encouraged while plans were being hatched to get them out.
The dramatic rescue of a Thai boys soccer team and their coach from a flooded cave complex this week transfixed news viewers around the world for more than two weeks, and the story is already headed for a retelling by Hollywood.
They were found 10 days later, huddled on a small, dry shelf just above the water, and divers and other global rescuers plotted the complex mission to rescue the team before more rain came.
The team's morale was hit when a former Thai Navy SEAL, Samarn Kunan, 38, died while helping lay out oxygen tanks underground.
Meanwhile, reports say the boys and the coach were sedated to stop them panicking during the unsafe rescue. He said that the boys were sleeping or partially-conscious as they were handed over from diver-to-diver through the cave, reported NST.
Five Seals and 13 foreign divers worked together to rescue the boys.
Ewan McGregor, a British missionary in the city of Chiang Rai where the boys are now in hospital, said: "It really is a miracle and a result of prayer and I'm just excited to hear the testimonies of the boys when they're safe and well".
Thongchai Lertwilairattanapong, a health department inspector, earlier told reporters one from the last group rescued on Tuesday had a lung infection and they were all given vaccinations for rabies and tetanus.
Mr Stanton declined to answer any medical questions but said: "They were carefully handled. The divers carried them out and they were wearing wetsuits to keep them warm", Thai navy SEAL chief Apakorn Youkongkaew said. It took the divers about eight hours to get into the cave, reach the boys and bring them back out.
Doctors, divers and other rescuers were posted along the twisting corridors monitoring the boys as they were passed through using a system of ropes, pulleys and rubber piping. "Of course, I'm very happy if the boys get Thai nationality, as they will be able to access full citizenship rights". All were improving quickly, the country's top public health official had said. And only a day later, a second movie was announced - but this one promising to circumvent that dreaded Hollywood tendency: whitewashing. Our embassy in Thailand made this possible.
Schnauer said he played "a small role" in the rescue efforts but the success of the operation showed what teamwork can achieve.
