Thailand cave rescue Brit diver says: 'We are not heroes'

Details also emerged about the rescue, with the boys sedated and passed on stretchers along the twisting, narrow passageways, and tributes flowed for the worldwide team of rescuers who never gave up in the quest to save the team.

The Thai Navy Seals also released new video showing the three-day rescue operation that captivated the world.

In this photo taken from video released by Thailand government, family members watch the rescued boys through a window at the Chiang Rai hospital in northern Thailand, Wednesday, July 11, 2018. He praised the cooperation between Thai and global rescuers.

Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported that the children were sedated and placed on stretchers to prevent them from panicking during the rescue mission from the Tham Luang cave complex.

The boys were held close to divers and remained motionless for parts of the journey where they had to dive.

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

Having completed this section, the boys were then handed over to separate, specialist rescue teams, who helped them through the remainder of the cave, much of which they could wade through.

Thailand's junta leader Prayut Chan-O-Cha on Tuesday said the boys were given a "minor tranquiliser" to keep them calm.

But he had denied they were knocked out for an operation the chief of the rescue had dubbed "mission impossible".

At U-Tapao civil-military airport in Rayong province, near where the Royal Thai Navy operates out of Sattahip Naval Base, Thai navy SEALs and some foreign military personnel were given a hero's' welcome when they touched down on Thursday.

"Suddenly the Australian guy who was overseeing that area started shouting that the water pump had stopped working", said Mr Chaiyananta.

The UN refugee agency says Thailand is home to around 480,000 stateless people.

The dramatic rescue of a Thai boys soccer team and their coach from a flooded cave complex this week transfixed news viewers around the world for more than two weeks, and the story is already headed for a retelling by Hollywood. When asked if he had a message for Thai kids, he told them not to go into a cave when it's raining, eliciting laughter.

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

Myanmar-born Adul Sam-on, 14, was the only member of the boys' football team able to communicate with British divers during the recent Thai cave rescue.

"The 33" brought in US$24.9 million at theatres worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo, just slightly more than its production budget.

Rescuers had weighed up several options to save the boys, including keeping them in the cave through the months-long monsoon season.

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.
