Thai boys wave to the world in first video since their rescue

Mr Volanthen also paid tribute to Thai navy diver Saman Kunan, who died while replenishing oxygen canisters, saying his death brought a "bittersweet" taste to an otherwise "excellent" operation. "We would love to welcome the team from Wild Boars Football Club and their rescuers to Old Trafford this coming season", the club tweeted on its official account.

Thailand's Department of Mental Health said hospitals are working with the families to help the boys mentally recover, including by not digging for details about what they endured. "Be good people, be a force for good for your country", Rear Admiral Apakorn Yuukongkaew, commander of Thailand's navy SEALS unit, said in a message to the boys before boarding a flight from Chiang Rai.

Rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters on Wednesday that the entire operation would not have been possible without the unique skills that Harris brought to the mission, though he did not elaborate.

As of now, the area is largely undeveloped with only limited tourism facilities.

The Tham Luang cave is one of the largest cave systems in Thailand. The diver who spoke to AFP said the boys were "groggy" but "breathing" when he helped to pull them out, while the BBC reported that according to divers, the boys were "heavily sedated to avoid anxiety".

The boys told doctors they did not see any bats or other animals, and experts say it is unlikely bats would dwell as deep in a cave as the boys were.

"FIFA would like to express its great joy at the news of the rescue of the 12 young footballers and their coach", the statement reads. "There was only a tiny bit of hope, but that's all we had to work with".

Well, collectively, Americans are the biggest iOS spenders, throwing $36 billion at Apple's virtual app store during its lifetime. However, none of them had included iPhone X support, the App Store's version history clearly notes .

"We're here (in Thailand) really looking at this as a movie that could inspire millions of people across the globe", says Michael Scott CEO of Pure Flix, which specializes in Christian and family films.

Everyone is strong in mind and heart.' The boys will be monitored for seven days and then rest at home for another 30 days, he added. He last partnered with Ivanhoe in directing the upcoming romantic comedy Crazy Rich Asians. "That's [why] they really [had] to speed up the rescue operation and that's how we got more global experts coming and [joining] hands in this operation". There's a lovely story abt human beings saving other human beings. "So anyone thinking abt the story better approach it right & respectfully".

The first eight boys rescued came in with low body temperatures and were provided with heaters, Thai doctors said on Tuesday.

Their plight and the massive, risky three-day-long operation to free them gripped the world's attention.

Earlier on Wednesday, the head of the Thai Navy Seals told the BBC that "hope became reality" with the rescue of the boys and their coach from the Tham Luang cave.

They were found by British divers after nine days, and were eventually rescued days after in an operation that involved dozens of divers and hundreds of other rescue workers.
