Boys' trek into Thai cave supposed to last only an hour!

Boys' trek into Thai cave supposed to last only an hour!

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 a rainy season downpour flooded the tunnels, trapping them.

While Tee, real name PornchaiKhamlunag, said: "I want to fried rice with crispy pork".

Two British divers found them on July 2, squatting on a mound in a flooded chamber several kilometers inside the complex.

The success of the rescue operation has even stunned its architects - expert divers who battled muddy, rushing floodwaters for days to reach the group and eventually extract them. "I want to say thank you for all the support", one of the boys says.

The boys will be unable to watch the World Cup Final live in Russian Federation, despite an invitation from FIFA, as they will only be released from hospital on Thursday.

"Hello, I'm Dom, my health is good".

"You can't blame the coach and you can't blame the kids", Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong, public health inspector, said in Thai at a press conference Wednesday.

Arthit Boonyasopat, the department chief, said the four will have to prove that they were born in Thailand and when they receive the certificates they can apply for Thai citizenship.

The special counsel said Manafort's actions violated federal law, and therefore violated the terms of his pretrial release. Manafort is innocent and nothing about the latest allegation changes our defense", Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni said.

Now, the very fortunate soccer players and their coach are recovering in hospital according to The New York Post, and are very anxious to be released next week so that they can finally indulge in their very favorite meals.

The rescue gripped the world, with much praise focusing on the navy SEALs and global team of divers who helped them, toiling for days in risky conditions to get the boys out. "And all this time 4 courageous Navy Seals sat with the Wild Boars knowing they were in as much danger as the kids", he wrote. "The boys' health is improving ... relatives can now visit them in close proximity", said Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong, a health ministry inspector.

Thailand's health minister Piyasakol Sakolsatayadorn has urged the boys and their families not to give media interviews in case it has a negative impact on their mental health.

Each of them took turns making a wai and thanking their Thai and global rescuers, as well as the world community, for saving and supporting them.

"Hello, I am Adul", he said to the camera.

Mr Jewell said: "Our role was to help transport the boys under water through the cave to bring them out".

A former SEAL who died during the cave rescue operation was posthumously promoted by the king Saturday morning, hours before his cremation.

The group entered the Tham Luang cave located in the northern province of Chiang Rai during an excursion on June 23 after completing a football training session when a sudden storm flooded their way out.
