First images emerge of boys rescued from Thailand cave

The last group of the 12-member "Wild Boars" soccer team and their coach was brought out of the Tham Luang cave, near the border with Myanmar, on Tuesday night, safely ending a unsafe rescue and evoking worldwide relief and joy. What we do is very calculating, very calm.

"My job was to transfer them along", he said, adding the "boys were wrapped up in stretchers already when they were being transferred".

Their rescue was particularly treacherous because the boys, aged 11 to 16, had to swim through tight spaces despite having no previous diving experience.

"The Australian doctor, he's very good, he's got a very good bedside manner", Mr Volanthen told reporters as he landed back in London. Some sat and made the "peace sign" gesture for the camera.

The boys have been given health cards, which they will continue to carry for two weeks after they leave the hospital, in order to jot down any issues.

Hospital Director Chaiwetch Thanapaisal said at a news conference that "everyone is strong in mind and heart", The Washington Post reported.

The first photographs of the boys recovering in a Chiang Rai hospital were released Wednesday.

In video shown at a press briefing, some of the parents were in tears as they looked through the glass. Authorities are anxious about the possibility of infections picked up in the cave.

The three-day rescue mission kicked off on Sunday (local time) and ended late on Tuesday.

The Xperia XA2 Plus gets a 3580mAh battery, that is supported by Qnovo adaptive charging, as well as QuickCharge 3.0. The Xperia XA2 Plus is a Single-SIM device and will be available in Black, Green, Gold, and Silver color variants.

However, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said that extra precautions need to be taken to ensure that both the inside and outside of the cave are safe for tourists. "The best way is not to bother them and let them study".

All are now recovering in hospital after the ordeal. They are then lowered down steep drops and pulled through terrifyingly narrow choke points.

Thailand spent yesterday celebrating the successful mission. They were found after 9 days by a pair of British divers.

Thailand's Navy, whose SEAL unit led the rescue, and the Thai government have selected Ivanhoe Pictures to develop a film that would be directed by John M Chu, the president of Ivanhoe Pictures, John Penotti, said in a statement.

The trapped group in Thailand have now all been rescued from the cave, and are now recuperating in hospital.

Isn't that wonderful? The Thai rescue mission has taught us one thing.

The fate of the boys has even resonated as far as Russian Federation, where soccer's World Cup is reaching its final stages.

The 12 Wild Boars players and their coach had entered the cave to go exploring June 23.

People magazine was granted a sneak peak of ABC News' 20/20 special edition where they discovered one of the boys' mates was holding a vigil by keeping his trapped friend's school seat warm.
