Thailand cave rescue to be turned into Hollywood movie

After days of mounting speculation, a former Thai Navy Seal diver broke the silence, revealing the boys were sleeping or partially-conscious as they were passed from diver-to-diver through the cave.

They are malnourished and weak, and doctors are anxious that they could be susceptible to germs spread by family members or other visitors, Dr. W. Ian Lipkin, a Columbia University infectious diseases expert, says.

"Our hearts go out to you and your family at this hard time", read one comment.

Every single person who was involved in the rescue operation did a tremendous job at bringing the boys out safely and I must say it wouldn't have been possible if everyone didn't chip in, including divers and experts from all around the world.

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.

Musk has since mooted other potential uses for the contraption, tweeting that it could be used to rescue people trapped in unsafe environments where exposure to toxic gases or waterborne viruses and bacteria may be a concern.

The boys, aged 11 to 16, are recovering in hospital after the ordeal at the Luang Nang Non caves in Chiang Rai province.

He claimed that the extraordinary session had sparked "a new sense of urgency and all allies agreed to redouble their efforts". If you've listened Trump talk about Putin over the last few years, you've seen this again and again.

As a group consisting of a medic and several Navy SEALs remained within the cave with the boys, teaching them how to swim and dive and fitting them with SCUBA gear, the mission to bring them out officially began on Sunday, July 8.

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

Three of the members of the youth soccer team and the coach come from Myanmar's Shan State, which borders Thailand. But Valeepoan absolved them of responsibility.

The parents wrote to coach Ekapol Chanthawong: "Please don't blame yourself for this".

"Make the most of your lives. Be good people, be a force for good for your country", Rear Admiral Apakorn Yuukongkaew, commander of Thailand's navy SEALS unit, said in a message to them before boarding a flight from Chiang Rai. The invention was a kid-sized submarine, one that Narongsak Osatanakorn, the official running coordination of the rescue effort, told the Guardian was "not practical" for their mission.

Without passports, they are unlikely to be able to take up the invite from Manchester United FC to visit next season. They were then carried on stretchers through dry parts to the cave's entrance.
