But Thai authorities have been coy on how a group of boys, many of whom could not swim and none with diving experience, could have navigated the treacherous narrow and submerged passageways of the Tham Luang complex, even with expert diving support.

The rescue efforts cost the life of one rescue worker - a former Thai Navy Seal ran out of air inside the cave system. "Thank you so much to everyone that has been praying for us and the boys and helping us; thank you".

The group ventured into the vast cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai after soccer practice on June 23 and were trapped when a rainy season downpour flooded tunnels.

"He's got a very bouncy Australian accent, and they seemed to find that quite relaxing and reassuring".

Members of the Thai navy SEAL team who were among the first searchers to penetrate the watery depth of Tham Luang Nang Non cave and the last divers out flew Thursday to their base at Sattahip on the Gulf of Thailand, where they received a heroes' welcome. The soccer team is now in isolation at a hospital following the rescue.

He did not say if the coach, the only adult with the boys for nine days before they found, was able to dive and walk out unaided.

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.

But he denied they were knocked out for the miraculous rescue.

"This victory goes to the heroes of the day, well done boys, you are so strong", French midfielder Paul Pogba tweeted after his team beat Belgium 1-0 on Tuesday to reach the final.

Coast Guard had one ship, the Cutter Wahoo from Station Neah Bay, and an air crew from Port Angeles respond. Coast Guard medevaced an 89-year-old man suffering from a stroke from a Carnival cruise ship on Monday.

Narongsak Osatanakorn is the official who oversaw the rescue operation. They will remain in hospital in the nearby city of Chiang Rai for a week, followed by a week's recuperation at home.

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

Five Seals and 13 foreign divers worked together to rescue the boys.

He said, "The situation went beyond just being a rescue mission and became a symbol of unity among man".

AT least two Hollywood production companies are looking into putting the dramatic rescue of the "Wild Boars" soccer team on the big screen but social media is abuzz with the potential whitewashing of the proposed film.

Chu took to Twitter to give his thoughts on this project and said, "I refuse to let Hollywood #whitewashout the Thai Cave rescue story!"

"It's Thai, Westerners, Europeans, Aussies - people from all over the world who helped bring these kids to safety", Scott told Reuters.

First, filmmakers need to secure the rights from each of the boys' families, the coach, and any rescuers they want to portray in order to get their firsthand accounts of what happened.
