Thai Boys and Soccer Coach Released From Hospital

Thai Boys and Soccer Coach Released From Hospital

The Thai football team rescued in a cave gifted Croatian Shirts.

Adul Sam-on, 14, was the only member of the Wild Boars who could speak English. The team heard voices but the language they were speaking was not Thai.

Fourteen-year-old Adul said: "We weren't sure if it was for real".

Calm camaraderie saw them through but there were moments of terror.

When the divers breached the surface, Ardoon said he was so shocked, all he could think to say was "hello". He said that water levels in the cave were normal when they entered but quickly rose while they were exploring. If the boys become novice monks, they will donate their gained merit to Kunan's memory.

Titan said he "thought about my parents" and felt that they "would be waiting in front of the cave".

"This is the happiest day of my life", she said.

They were forced to swim part of the way before roping themselves together as the water continued to rise. Unsworth told AFP he may take legal action against Musk over the offensive tweet. Concerned that they might soon be submerged, he instructed the group to start digging and look for a potential exit.

The discovery launched the rescue effort that brought them all to safety over three days.

"I have to praise the coach who took care of the footballers very well", Lertvirairatanapong said.

In fact, most of the boys acknowledged that they didn't inform their parents about the cave exploration trip and that they truly regretted their actions.

What do you say to a crowd of people who have come out to greet you after you've spent over two weeks in an underground cave?

Another said that the experience "has taught me to be more patient and strong".

The Wild Boards soccer team had been trapped in the tunnel complex for 9 days before they were finally found by Navy SEALs.

Authorities said that more than 100 questions were sent in from members of the media, though only a handful were selected.

Doctors have advised families of the players, aged 11 to 16, that they should avoid letting them contact journalists for at least one month.

The daring Thai-led global effort to rescue the team captivated the world after the football team walked into the cave on June 23 and were trapped by rising floodwaters.

The group had planned to explore the Tham Luang caves for about an hour after soccer practice on June 23. "When they said "hello" to me, I said 'hello" back.

His first meal was stewed pork knuckle over rice, a dish he had yearned to eat while stranded in the cave, where the boys had no food for days and survived only on water dripping from stalactites. The first joke was cracked by a Thai Navy Seal diver as he introduced himself: "My name is Baitoey and I'm the most attractive in the cave". He was returning from delivering oxygen to the boys.

All of them made it out alive.

They had little concept of time but the first time they went to sleep they prayed, Ekkapol said. He said his coach didn't carry him out of the cave but that he held onto his back while swimming out.
