Thailand promises citizenship to three rescued boys and coach

One of the giant pumps failed after the last of the boys had been rescued causing water levels in the caves to rise dangerously fast

Doctors have said all 12 boys and their coach are in a "good condition" but remain on bed rest.

The boys would have to stay in the hospital for up to 10 days, hospital director Chaiwetch Thanapaisal told the news conference.

Thais are calling for the "stateless" soccer coach and three of the 12 boys rescued from a flooded cave to be made citizens of Thailand.

One of the British divers said: "I was told the boys were given a dose of ketamine [a horse tranquilliser often used as a recreational drug] to keep them calm". Three boys from the last group saved have ear infections.

At U-Tapao civil-military airport in Rayong province, near where the Royal Thai Navy operates out of Sattahip Naval Base, Thai navy SEALs and some foreign military personnel were given a hero's' welcome when they touched down on Thursday. "The coach was the one to choose", he said.

AT least two Hollywood production companies are looking into putting the dramatic rescue of the "Wild Boars" soccer team on the big screen but social media is abuzz with the potential whitewashing of the proposed film.

"By the time the last diver was out the water was already at head level, nearly to the point where he needed an oxygen tank".

The complex mission for global and Thai divers to guide the boys and coach through the cave's flooded and tight passageways had riveted people worldwide.

However, ex-Navy SEAL diver Saman Kunan died during the rescue effort.

Narongsak Osatanakorn, the official overseeing the rescue operation, said the boys should not be blamed for their near tragedy.

"We are humbled to have been able to provide our expertise and experience to assist in this global operation led by the Thai government".

The final four boys who were rescued from a Thai cave on Tuesday night still can't talk.

"We're just very happy that the boys are out and safe", he said.

He added that everyone worked together without concerns about race or religion, as the goal was to save the young football team.

The head of the rescue team, Narongsak Osottanakorn, revealed yesterday that the cave will be turned into "a living museum".

Their rescue was particularly treacherous because the boys, aged 11 to 16, had to swim through tight spaces despite having no previous diving experience.

Police officers took photographs of each other at the massive cave entrance, as pumps continued to suck out huge volumes of water.

Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong, a public health inspector, said the boys lost an average of 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) while they were trapped. Before their discovery, they survived by drinking water dripping into their cramped refuge. Around five minutes into this video, the boy shown on screen has his eyes closed but appears conscious, bringing his right hand to his torso as people gather around him.

Described in a South Australia Ambulance Service statement as a "quiet and kind man" who "didn't think twice about offering his support on this mission", Harris was lauded for his work throughout the rescue effort.
