Share this article


The Thai rescue mission is complete with all 12 boys and their football coach safely out of the flooded cave in Chiang Rai.

Witnesses reported seeing 3 people carried out on stretchers earlier this morning, with two others in the afternoon.

The doctor and three navy SEALs who've been with them since they were found are also expected to come out today now that the mission is complete.

8 boys who were rescued yesterday and Sunday are now recovering in hospital.

Some of them have been visited by their families, although they've only been allowed to meet through glass, for fears of the boys picking up an infection.

It ultimately was up to the boys to decide along with the doctor to come up with a plan of who to go first.

The rescued boys are being quarantined in case any of them contracted infections while inside the cave. The hospital has sent test samples from the boys to a lab in Bangkok.

The boys were exploring the caves on June 23 with their coach when they were trapped inside by heavy seasonal rains. They were eventually found on July 2nd.

There had been reports that FIFA had invited the rescued boys to attend the World Cup final in Russia on Sunday.

But doctors have said they will not be able to go becasue they will need to spend a week in hospital to recover fully.

The Thai prime minister has said that increased security will be introduced at the cave made "world famous" by this week's heroic rescue operation.
