British Diver Who Helped Rescue Trapped Boys in Thailand Returns to UK

13 July 2018

On Wednesday, just one day after successfully completing the rescue mission, Thai Navy SEALs released a video on their Facebook page showing exactly how all 12 boys, aged 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach were ushered to safety after more than two weeks trapped deep within a cave.

Earlier on Thursday, footage emerged of the boys recovering in hospital, sitting up and even waving at the camera, while their parents watched from behind the glass.

A screen grab shows boys rescued from the Thai cave wearing mask and resting in a hospital in Chiang Rai, Thailand from a July 11, 2018 handout video.

But Thailand's Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha warned previously that precautions will have to be taken to make sure visitors are safe - including adding lights and signs to the Tham Luang cave network.

NDTV is one of the leaders in the production and broadcasting of un-biased and comprehensive news and entertainment programmes in India and overseas.

The boys would have to stay in the hospital for up to 10 days, hospital director Chaiwetch Thanapaisal told the news conference. They would then need to recuperate at home for 30 days, he said. He said his wife grew up with Samarn Poonan, the former Thai navy SEAL who died during the mission.

The movie would comparable to the 2015 film "The 33" starring Antonio Banderas, detailing the 2010 rescue of 33 Chilean miners who were trapped underground for over three months. Lit by several beams of white light, the divers in wet suits and helmets are seen submerging themselves in the water and grabbing on to a metal dive line used to guide them through the winding channels of the six-mile cave.

But he had denied they were knocked out for an operation the chief of the rescue had dubbed "mission impossible".

The dangers of the rescue were brought into sharp relief last Friday by the death of a retired Thai Navy Seal as he ran out of air in the flooded cave complex as extraction plans were being laid.

"We're here really looking at this as a movie that could inspire millions of people across the globe", Scott added.

Ms Bishop said the doctor is also known to authorities for his work on medical assistance teams in natural disasters in the Pacific region, and has taken part in Australian aid missions in Vanuatu. "For SEALs, this is what we were trained for".

Official help came from Britain, the United States, Japan, Laos, Myanmar, China and Australia, a government document showed.

But the mission, which leaned on the expertise of elite foreign divers and Thai Navy SEALs, almost turned into a calamity. When divers reached them later, they brought additional food, water and blankets.

The fate of the boys has even resonated as far as Russian Federation, where soccer's World Cup is reaching its final stages.

It went viral, earning more than 9,000 retweets in less than a day.

"Amazing news that all of the Thai kids are out of the cave safely!"

Contrary to the idea that the children would swim out, they appear to be motionless in the video as they are passed along a chain of rescuers including Thai navy personnel and volunteers from around the world.
