Thai Soccer Players Wave in First Hospital Footage Since Dramatic Cave Rescue

He continued, "My wife actually grew up with the Thai Navy SEAL that died in the cave".

Eight boys had been brought out in two expeditions on Sunday and Monday, leaving a further four and their football coach to make the perilous journey back to the entrance on Tuesday.

"By the time the last diver was out the water was already at head level, nearly to the point where he needed an oxygen tank".

The global bid to extract the team garnered attention from around the world after the team found themselves trapped on June 23 when they entered the cave after practice and were blocked by floodwaters.

One of the British divers said: "I was told the boys were given a dose of ketamine [a horse tranquilliser often used as a recreational drug] to keep them calm". Two of the first group had a lung infection as well, and he said they would need medicine for seven days.

"We just needed them to know how to breathe and not panic in the water", he said.

The new video from the navy does not include footage of the divers in the water with the boys, but it does show a team of people using pulleys, string and rubber tubes to haul a green, kayak-shaped stretcher out of a tight crevice. In underwater parts, they were pulled along in a dream-like state by divers.

But Mr Prayut denied this, saying: "All of the children were conscious during the operation". "He's thinner", she said, as she ran her finger over the image of her son on a television screen.

The world held its breath over the three days it took to retrieve the Wild Boars.

The video shows several of the "Wild Boars" football team in hospital, after being rescued from the Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand in a three-day operation which ended successfully on Tuesday.

The exact mechanics of the rescue bid were closely guarded during the operation, but details have since dribbled out.

Experts say the divers brought a variety of skills, including the ability to install guide lines that help in low visibility, and previous experience in worldwide operations.

But one man has emerged as a pivotal figure in the most unlikely of rescues - Australian diver and anaesthetist Richard "Harry" Harris.

Rescue officials said the museum would showcase how the operation unfolded, adding that it would be a "major attraction" for Thailand.

"That won't happen or we'll give them hell".

Divers found the group after nine days inside the flooded cave, but needed to rehearse the rescue because of treacherous conditions through the cave's 2.5 mile (4 kilometer) long passages.

In one section of film shot in a dry part of the cave system, six rescuers grip the handles of a tough plastic cradle carrying their precious young cargo.

"What was really important was the coach and the boys all came together and discussed staying strong, having the will to live, having the will to survive", Anderson said. However, there is no set date for their discharge from hospital as they continue to undergo treatment.
