Thai Navy SEALs Footage Shows Sedated Group Carried From Cave

Tense footage of the incredible Thailand rescue has highlighted just how unsafe the path to safety was for the 12 boys.

Harris signed off on the health of the boys before each rescue began and did not emerge from the cave until each day's rescue had been completed.

That left 20 or so divers scrambling to flee the rising waters, he said, explaining they narrowly made it out time. "We were extremely fortunate that the outcome was the way it was".

"I haven't asked the coach yet why he chose that order", he said.

That gutsy determination was on display Wednesday in a video taken from the hospital isolation ward. Some are walking around, while others sit up in their beds, waving at cameras and flashing the Spider-Man hand sign from their quarantined unit at the Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital.

Torres was a free agent after leaving Atletico Madrid this summer and had been linked with moves to various leagues around the world.

The youngest, 11, appeared asleep under a crisp white sheet.

The Director of Chiang Rai Hospital said that the boys will need to remain hospitalised for seven to 10 days and then another month of home recovery. Three boys from the last group saved have ear infections.

Released on the Thai Navy SEALs Facebook page, the clip showed the boys being stretchered to freedom while wearing wetsuits and diving gear. "Be good people, be a force for good for your country", Rear Admiral Apakorn Yuukongkaew, commander of Thailand's navy SEALS unit, said in a message to the boys before boarding a flight from Chiang Rai. "The coach was the one to choose".

The global bid to extract the team garnered attention from around the world after the team found themselves trapped on June 23 when they entered the cave after practice and were blocked by floodwaters. They were found by a pair of British divers almost 10 days later, huddled on a small, dry shelf just above the water, smiling with relief but visibly skinny.

The worldwide rescue effort, which saw all 12 boys and their coach safely extracted from the flooded cave system after more than two weeks, hit particularly close to home for Scott. A former Thai Navy diver lost his life while on a re-supply mission inside the cave to support the rescue.

Monday's rescue mission, which saw four boys extracted before dusk and whisked to Chiang Rai hospital, took around nine hours. Rescue chief Narongsak on Sunday described their journey out, escorted by the elite divers, as "smooth".

Divers who took part in the operation said the boys were heavily sedated to avoid anxiety as they went through the dark, narrow, underwater passageways.

Before the mission got underway on Sunday, rescue workers warned it would be a delicate operation. "Everyone worked together without discrimination of race or religion as the ultimate goal was to save the youth football team".

Officials plan an interactive museum at the Tham Luang cave based on the historic rescue mission that will feature items such as clothing that key rescuers wore during the operation, Narongsak said.
