Hero Aussie Doctor In Thai Cave Rescue Breaks Silence

BANGKOK/CHIANG RAI-The head of a Thai navy SEAL diving team that helped lead 12 boys and their soccer coach through a flooded cave complex to safety urged the boys on Thursday to "make the most" of their lives and be a force for good. The extensive search-and-rescue operation, which included more than 1,000 people from various nations, has now switched to a treatment process.

The 12 boys rescued from deep within a flooded cave in northern Thailand made two-finger victory signs from their hospital beds on Wednesday in a moving video from the isolation ward where they're recuperating from their 18-day ordeal. They were all were rushed to the hospital mostly because of fear of infection.

Rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters on Wednesday that the entire operation would not have been possible without the unique skills that Harris brought to the mission, though he did not elaborate. "Everybody can now rest and do daily activities". "We wish them a speedy recovery", they said.

Narongsak Osatanakorn, the Thai official leading rescue operations, said they didn't need Musk's sub. They were allowed to again visit but had to stay more than 6 feet away.

"They are the toughest blokes and kids I have ever had the privilege to meet", he said in a conversation with the Prime Minister. "The second group will do the same today".

Around 6pm local time on Tuesday it was a moment of relief for loved ones when the last child emerged from the cave, safely followed by the 25-year-old coach.

Thai authorities and representatives for Musk begin discussing the possibility of using resources from Musk's companies to help rescue the boys' in the cave, including using technology from SpaceX, Tesla, or The Boring Company.

The boys and their coach remain in hospital, after some of them spent up to 17 days trapped in the cave.

A statement from Thailand's public health ministry on Thursday said two boys from the first group rescued on Sunday who were diagnosed with a lung infection were recovering well.

"Our thanks and greatest admiration go the British lead divers, and support divers along the route in and out of the cave system from the EU, US, China and Australia, as well as the vast number of participants from military and civilian organisations in various support roles". "You can't blame the coach and you can't blame the kids", Thongchai said. At other times, they endured dives lasting up to half an hour in the pitch-black waters. "We have to admire the coach that he managed well in this situation".
