Saved Thai Soccer Team Can't Accept Invite to Attend World Cup Final

Hero or villain? Trump's court pick is in for a fight

"MISSION IMPOSSIBLE" was the term used to describe the complicated rescue operation at the flooded Tham Luang Cave.

The four boys and soccer coach brought out Tuesday on the final day of an all-out three-day push to save all of them had recovered more quickly than the boys rescued on Sunday and Monday, Chaiwetch said.

Harris' colleagues and fellow rescuers lauded his commitment to the mission and how vital his expertise was in bringing the boys out to safety.

On Wednesday, several of the boys were filmed in the hospital, flashing victory signs.

Some of the children were not capable of navigating the treacherous passageways of the cave complex alone, making the operation more challenging.

Highlighting the dangers, a former Thai Navy SEAL died on Friday while replenishing the canisters.

After days of mounting speculation, another former SEAL diver revealed the boys were sleeping or partially-conscious.

"Some of them were asleep, some of them were wiggling their fingers..."

"Some say the boys were heroes, others say they weren't".

Thailand's junta chief told reporters on Tuesday that the group had been given a "minor tranquiliser" to help calm their nerves.

Australian rangers capture massive crocodile after 8-year search
A smaller crocodile, measuring nearly eight feet, was also captured, according to the newspaper. Webb said that areas where saltwater crocodiles are the most sparse can be the most risky .

"Hooyah! Mission accomplished", read another, echoing the rallying cry of the Thai navy SEALs involved in the rescue.

They were taken by helicopter to a hospital about 70 kilometers (45 miles) away to join their teammates in quarantine.

Against the odds, the team - ranging in age from 11 to 16 - and their 25-year-old coach were rescued after being stranded in the underground cave network for over two weeks.

The Wild Boars FC football team ventured into the depths of a vast and complex Tham Luang cave on June 23. It showed that many of them appeared to be in good condition. A health department inspector previously told journalists that one of the boys had a lung infection and that all children were vaccinated for rabies and tetanus, according to the London Evening Standard.

The saga of the "Wild Boars" gripped the world, with the lives of the group hanging in the balance as the threat of heavy rain injected urgency to an already perilous extraction bid.

Closer to home, Chiang Rai locals rejoiced at the odds-upsetting rescue bid.

"This may be because they spent the entire time together as a team helping each other out", he said. Jedsada said they were uncertain what type of infections the boys could face "because we have never experienced this kind of issue from a deep cave".

But they were prodded into the unsafe task of bringing the team through submerged chambers and claustrophobic passages as oxygen levels in the cave plummeted and rains menaced. "I'm happy for Thais all over the country", he said.

But before they were found, the group had to survive for nine days in the darkness unaware of the desperate search efforts.

French midfielder Paul Pogba dedicated his side's semifinal win over Belgium Tuesday to the rescued team.
