Thailand cave rescue boys send video message from hospital

Thailand cave rescue boys send video message from hospital

British cave diver Richard Stanton arrives at the Tham Luang cave area as rescue operations continue for the 12 boys and their coach trapped at the cave in Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park in the Mae Sai district of Chiang Rai province on July 6, 2018. Nearly immediately after they entered the caverns, a torrential seasonal downpour flooded the systems behind them, trapping them deep within the caves.

eNCA brings you exclusive footage showing Thai navy divers several kilometres inside the flooded cave Saturday during their desperate search for the missing boys. "I want to say thanks to everyone that anxious", he said.

The last of the boys was freed on July 10 and they are expected to be discharged from hospital on Thursday.

"I want pork knuckle rice", said 13-year-old Duangpetch Promtep. "If the passage was low and wide you'd hold it to the side", he said.

He said: "Initially of course excitement, relief that they were still alive".

Now, the very fortunate soccer players and their coach are recovering in hospital according to The New York Post, and are very anxious to be released next week so that they can finally indulge in their very favorite meals.

Local military, police, and the Thai Navy SEALs worked alongside thousands of local and worldwide volunteers, divers, doctors, and experts to aid in the urgent rescue mission. "Do not impose any more stress on them", said Dr Piyasakol.

"They thought they'd only be an hour", Banpot Korncam, father of the 13-year-old captain of the "Wild Boars" team, told media.

Justice's stance on immigration, voting rights more important than abortion
Just as the Supreme Court overturned the Dred Scott and Plessy decisions, the high court should overturn Roe v. He said Roe took democracy out of the abortion equation by declaring it a privacy right protected by the U.S.

Thailand's health minister Piyasakol Sakolsatayadorn has urged the boys and their families not to give media interviews in case it has a negative impact on their mental health.

Video released Saturday shows the boys in the hospital as they recover.

"Now, I am healthy like normal, can eat normal", Ekapol said in Thai.

"We were just using a very, very unique skill set which we normally use for our own interest", he said.

He said the boys were "ecstatic" when the two divers appeared in front of the ledge where they had sought sanctuary, crowding to the front of the bank to greet their rescuers.

The 12 boys, aged between 11 and 16, and their coach became trapped on June 23 when they were cut off by floodwaters while exploring the cave. A former Thai Navy Seal died last Friday, highlighting the dangers.

Thai authorities are planning to turn the cave into a "living museum" while the idea of turning the rescue into movies has also been mooted.
