Derek Anderson, a 32-year-old rescue specialist with the U.S. Air Force based in Okinawa, Japan, said the dozen boys, ranging in age from 11 to 16, and their coach, who were trapped for more than two weeks before being rescued this week, were "incredibly resilient".
Footage of the moment Stanton and John Volanthen discovered the 12 dishevelled and emaciated boys was viewed millions of times after it was posted on the official Facebook page of Thai Navy SEAL, prompting hope for their rescue.
"H$3 e's got a very bouncy Australian accent, and they seemed to find that quite relaxing and reassuring", Mr Volanthen told reporters at Heathrow Airport, upon his return from Thailand.
Then the problem became how to get them back out through the tunnels, some completely full of fast-flowing flood water.
"While they were inside the cave it rained, water flowed in and everyone took off", Banpot said.
"They are the toughest blokes and kids I have ever had the privilege to meet", he said in a conversation with the Prime Minister. We wish them a speedy recovery.
Many people in Thailand have credited the coach, Ekkapol Chantawong, or Ek as he is known, for keeping the boys safe during the ordeal.
Dr Harris was the last person to come out of the cave.
Nine days later British divers found the disheveled and hungry group perched on a ledge four kilometers (2.5 miles) inside the cave. He gave no cause of death or the age of Harris' father, Jim.
Dr Harris was the last person to come out of the cave and is being called a hero.

The 12 boys had gone missing while exploring the cave after football practice with their coach on 23 June.
The global bid to extract the team garnered attention from around the world after the team found themselves trapped on June 23 when they entered the cave after practice and were blocked by floodwaters.
