Hailed as the "most complex cave rescue in history" the group suffered from malnutrition and exhaustion while in the caves, and needed immediate care.

Narongsak, giving details of the rescue, said falling oxygen levels inside the cave complex had added a sense of urgency. The boys are expected to be kept in hospital for at least a week while their immune systems recover.

Now, the boys are in the hospital where new video shows them sitting up in their beds, their relieved parents watching them through a window.

Another video released on Facebook by the Thai Navy SEALs, who were central to the rescue, showed one of the boys being carried through part of the muddy cave on a stretcher covered by an emergency thermal blanket.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) also said it planned to promote the Tham Luang cave as a tourist attraction after it featured so prominently in the news. They were being treated at a hospital in Chiang Rai.

The area is largely undeveloped with only limited tourism facilities.

"An interactive data base will be set up" he said.

"I believe it will become another highlight in Thailand", he said.

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha asked that the boys be given time to recover.

Chris was forecasted to begin weakening by Thursday, and become a strong post-tropical cyclone by Thursday night or early Friday. Storm swells generated by Chris will be hitting North Carolina and other mid-Atlantic states over the next few days.


It's not clear if the museum would be operational all year round, as Thailand is prone to heavy floods during the monsoon season, which lasts from June until October.

First, filmmakers need to secure the rights from each of the boys' families, the coach, and any rescuers they want to portray in order to get their firsthand accounts of what happened.

Described in a South Australia Ambulance Service statement as a "quiet and kind man" who "didn't think twice about offering his support on this mission" Harry, as he is known, was lauded for his work in throughout the rescue period.

The members of the "Wild Boars" team, aged 11-16, had no experience in scuba diving, and the death of an ex-Navy SEAL who had helped install oxygen tanks in preparation for the rescue underscored the dangers of the mission. They forged deeper into the cave and found a dry, elevated slope where they remained stranded in total darkness for 10 days before rescuers located them.

Ivanhoe Pictures president John Penotti on Wednesday issued a statement saying that Thailand's Navy and government had selected the company for the film adaptation of the almost three-week ordeal. He last partnered with Ivanhoe in directing the upcoming romantic comedy Crazy Rich Asians.

"No way. Not on our watch".

"We're just very happy that the boys are out and safe", he said.

Chu, a Chinese-American born in California, added: "There's a handsome story abt human beings saving other human beings. So anyone thinking [about] the story better approach it right & respectfully".

Despite the ordeal, the boys seem to be in fairly good shape, according to Thongchai Lertwilairattanapong, an inspector for Thailand's health department. 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.
