Thai cave operation: Pumps failed after last boy rescued

Thai cave operation: Pumps failed after last boy rescued

Mr Volanthen, an IT consultant based in Bristol but who grew up in Brighton, was one of the first rescuers to discover the group huddled in the darkness of the Luang Nang Non Cave.

It is not clear whether the museum will be open year round as Thailand is prone to heavy floods during the monsoon season, which lasts from June until October.

They were brought out safely following an extraordinary saga of global cooperation and ingenuity, as experts from many fields planned how to manoeuvre all 13 out alive.

The new video from the navy does not include footage of the divers in the water with the boys, but it does show a team of people using pulleys, string and rubber tubes to haul a green, kayak-shaped stretcher out of a tight crevice.

Adisak Wongsukchan told Al Jazeera he gave his 14-year-old son Nong Bew a big thumbs up when he first saw him in hospital. "I want to say thanks for all the support and I want to apologize to the parents".

The 12 boys and their coach lost an average of 2 kg (4.4 lb) during their 17-day ordeal but were generally in good condition and showed no signs of stress, a senior health official said on Wednesday.

But Mr Volanthen credited the global team of military, navy and civilian divers who all "pulled together".

"Some of them were asleep, and some of them were wiggling their fingers, kind of groggy, but they were breathing".

The children were kept in special full-face diving masks even over the dry sections because of dwindling oxygen underground.

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. What we do is very calculating, very calm.

"They were making progress, but it was very little progress and they were exhausting themselves spending maybe five or six hours and covering 40 or 50 meters (yards)".

"It was mostly a matter of clambering through mud, which was very tough", Ben Reymenants said.

Messages were sent to the Thai boys following the Thai cave rescue.

Despite the online brickbats, Ivanhoe Pictures' John M. Chu, who directed upcoming film "Crazy Rich Asians", said he would be sensitive to the diversity in the story.

The other company looking to develop a movie on the event is USA -based Pure Flix, which specializes in Christian and family films.

Co-founder Michael Scott told Reuters news agency that producers from the company were already on the ground interviewing rescue workers. The boys are expected to be released within seven days barring complications.

"We would love to welcome the team from Wild Boars Football Club and their rescuers", the club tweeted.

An Australian doctor and three members of the Thai Navy SEAL unit who had stayed with the boys since they were found were the last people to leave the caves.

Ekkapol Chantawong, Phonchai Khamluang, and Adul Sam-on, three survivors from the Tham Luang cave, are among 500,000 stateless persons in Thailand who have to endure limitations in many aspects of their life as they are denied some rights and opportunities.
