Thailand cave rescue to be turned into Hollywood movie

Thailand cave rescue to be turned into Hollywood movie

The boys, aged 11-16, and their 25-year-old coach were trapped inside the miles-long Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Chiang Rai Province, Thailand, on June 23 for almost two weeks.

Thai navy SEALs posted a almost six-minute video on their Facebook page that shows rescue workers pass along green stretchers in which the boys were being transported.

The team and coach had ventured into the complex after a practice but became trapped when heavy rains flooded the way they'd come in.

"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 rescue sparked jubilation with Thais heaping praise on the rescue team of foreign and local divers as the triumphant tagline "Hooyah" pinballed across social media.

"He is brilliant with children, and he would have made sure that they were prepared in the best possible way from a cave-diving perspective", she said.

On July 2, nine days after the boys and their coach were last seen, British divers Rick Stanton and John Volanthen pushed deep into the cave to an elevated mound of rock, about 400 metres away from a spot cavers had nicknamed "Pattaya Beach" after a well-known Thai resort. And then the miracle: they got out. On Tuesday, rescuers pulled off an improbable feat when they finished removing all 13 people from the Tham Luang Cave.

"We're just very happy that the boys are out and safe", he said.

"When they were hungry Coach Ek would use a flashlight to shine on the stalactites above", he said.

The group was trapped in the cave by rising water and rescued in a dramatic operation that captivated the world.

It also involved about 90 divers in all, 50 of them from overseas, as well as medics, ambulance drivers, and helicopter pilots to take the boys straight to hospital in the town of Chiang Rai. They were all were rushed to the hospital mostly because of fear of infection. The aim, Anderson said, was to make each of the boys "tightly packaged" so divers could keep control of them and adjust their air supply as needed.

The video of the rescue, which ended on Tuesday (June 10) when the final four boys and their 25-year-old coach emerged from the cave, was released by authorities who had until late yesterday closely guarded the details of the seemingly unprecedented operation.

Thai Navy SEALs also posted photos and a video of some of their operations in the cave on their Facebook page Wednesday.

He added: "We are not heroes".

They said: "Thank you to God who helps us to see our son very soon". It's very calm, it's quite the opposite.
