  • Thai boys lost weight but generally well after cave ordeal

Rescue workers extracted the last group of the "Wild Boars" soccer team from the Tham Luang cave on Tuesday night, ensuring a happy ending to a 17-day ordeal that had gripped the world.

Footage released by the SEAL team showed seemingly prone boys - at least one in full diving mask and wetsuit - being stretchered along the jagged passageways.

Doctors treating the 12 boys and their coach who survived their misadventure said their health is normal, although a few have low fevers and mild ear infections.

The mission to rescue 12 boys and their soccer coach from a Thai cave is to get the Hollywood treatment in a movie announced by faith-based production house Pure Flix. But Adun's proficiency in languages - he speaks four - proved key inside the cave, as he acted as translator for the British divers during the complicated rescue.

How long will the boys be in hospital?

"The important thing is ... personal space", Prayuth told reporters.

The cave complex in Thailand's northern Chiang Rai province, where 12 boys and their football coach were trapped for more than two weeks, will be turned into a museum, BBC reported on Thursday.

"FIFA's priority remains the health of everyone involved in the operation and we will look into finding a new opportunity to invite the boys to a Federation Internationale de Football Association event to share with them a moment of communion and celebration".

"Some of them were asleep, some of them were wiggling their fingers".

"We had to set up rope systems and high-lines to be able to safely put them in a harness and bring them across large open areas so they wouldn't have to go all the way down", he said. The other five on the team were Thai navy SEAL divers.

Injuries Reported After Plane Crashes With 11 People Aboard in Alaska
A plane carrying 11 people crashed Tuesday on a mountainside in Alaska, officials and rescuers said, but there were no deaths. All 11 passengers on the plane survived the crash on Mount Jumbo, southwest of the city of Ketchikan.

"That was just in the very beginning of the cave and at that point we realised this problem is going to be much more complex than we thought".

The group was trapped in the cave by rising water and rescued in a dramatic operation that captivated the world.

That gutsy determination was on display today in a video taken from the hospital isolation ward.

U.S. media quoted the company as saying the film would be directed by Jon M Chu.

Variety reported that Chu and Ivanhoe Pictures, which co-produced next month's release "Crazy Rich Asians", are in talks with studios and senior national and provincial officials in Thailand. The family members were not allowed to enter the room where they are being treated, in order to avoid infection, Dr Chaiyawej Thanapaisarn said.

"He's a miracle boy", she told us.

He said the children hadn't eaten any food in the nine days before they were found, and drank murky water from inside the cave, which saved them.

Even so, all need to be monitored in the hospital for seven days and then rest at home for another 30 days, he said.

The last group of the 12-member "Wild Boars" team and their adult coach was brought out of the Tham Luang cave, near the border with Myanmar, on Tuesday night, safely ending a unsafe rescue and evoking global relief and joy.
