Thailand Cave Rescue: Soccer Team's Ordeal May Get Hollywood Treatment

Thailand Cave Rescue: Soccer Team's Ordeal May Get Hollywood Treatment

"They have become the world's kids". They were trapped by floods more than two weeks ago.

They were brought to the surface by a daisy chain of divers who guided them through 4km of narrow, murky water-filled passages.

"Everyone is in a good mental state", Jesada Chokedamrongsuk, permanent secretary of the public health ministry, told reporters at Chiang Rai hospital.

Thailand's Department of Mental Health said hospitals were working with the families to help the boys mentally recover, including by not digging for details about what they endured.

The plight of the boys has prompted an outpouring of support from across the footballing world, from Brazil legend Ronaldo to England's John Stones and Argentinian superstar Lionel Messi.

The SEALs say they're still waiting for a medic and three Navy SEALs who stayed with the boys to emerge from the cave.

American space entrepreneur Elon Musk tweeted that he visited the Tham Luang cave operation on Monday and Tuesday morning, and left behind a prototype mini-sub "in case it is useful" at the flooded cave where five members of a youth football team remained trapped.

The boys, who range in age from 11 to 16, and Ekapol Chanthawong, 25, were exploring the cave system in Chiang Rai after a practice game on June 23, when monsoon rains flooded the entrance. They have had to stay away from their parents and other people for fear of infection.

"#MUFC is relieved to learn that the 12 footballers and their coach trapped in a cave in Thailand are now safe".

Reymenants described the cave and the rescue efforts to Sky News as "one of the more extreme cave dives I've done".

"We expect that if there is no unusual condition. the 4 boys, 1 coach, the doctor, and 3 SEALs who have been with the boys since the first day will will come out today", he told a press conference to loud cheering. Some cross the border each day to go to school, a routine that Wassana Saebaew, one of their classmates, knows well.

Four boys and their soccer coach remain in the cave.

This was because the boys were malnourished and weak, and doctors could be anxious that they could be susceptible to germs spread by family members or other visitors, said Dr W Ian Lipkin, a Columbia University infectious diseases expert.

"I'd like to send out shirts to them!"

The Thai football team rescued from a cave after 17 days underground will not attend the World Cup final due to medical reasons, FIFA has confirmed. Musk had proposed possible technological solutions for extracting the boys while they were trapped and travelled to Thailand this week.
