Thai Soccer Team Shown Safe in Hospital in First Footage Since Rescue

Richard Harris a doctor from South Australia swam into the cave to determine if the boys were fit enough to make their arduous journey out of the cave

This week, after an 18-day ordeal, they were all rescued from the cave complex.

Speaking earlier Wednesday, health ministry inspector Tongchai Lertvirairatanapong said the boys were in "good condition", despite each losing an average of two kilograms (4.4 pounds) in weight during their time in the cave.

The boys seem to be going through progressive stages once they reach the hospital.

Four boys were rescued Sunday, and another four were guided to safety on Monday.

The extraordinary operation to save the boys came to an end on Tuesday, when the Thai Navy SEAL rescuers and a doctor followed the last four boys and their coach out of the cave complex.

In a video released Wednesday, three of the 12 rescued boys are seen recovering in their hospital beds.

The video footage shows how engineers preparing for the operation had carved neat steps into steep slopes in the tunnels to make it easier, although they were cascading with water. Some sat and made the "peace sign" gesture for the camera. The photos also showed parents of the boys looking at their children through a glass window.

Parents of the boys have been watching their children at the hospital as they recover and are evaluated by doctors. Family members were not allowed to enter the hospital room in order to prevent infection.

The 12 boys and their coach, Ekkapol Ake Chantawong, were confirmed to be physically healthy, with only three of the boys treated for minor pneumonia.

A Thai navy SEAL diver told AFP news agency the boys were sleeping or partially conscious as they were carried out of the cave.

British divers found the 13 members of the soccer team huddled on a muddy ledge in a partly flooded chamber inside the cave.
