Thailand cave rescue to be turned into Hollywood movie

Some of the rescued boys in hospital Boys Rescued from Thai Cave in Good Health

All 12 of the boys and their 25-year-old coach were brought to safety over the course of a three-day rescue, organised by Thai navy SEALs and an global team of diving and caving experts, that ended on Tuesday.

He also paid tribute to Thai navy diver Saman Kunan, who died while replenishing oxygen canisters, saying his death brought a "bittersweet" taste to an otherwise successful operation.

Having completed this section, the boys were then handed over to separate, specialist rescue teams, who helped them through the remainder of the cave, much of which they could wade through.

The hope that the boys will stay out of the spotlight for some time was one shared by former mine foreman Luis Urzua, who was trapped in a mine in Chile for 69 days following a collapse.

With the boys still recuperating in hospital, US-based production companies have already taken an interest in turning their story into a motion picture.

The "Wild Boars" football team got stuck inside the cave on June 23 after flooding caused by heavy monsoon rains blocked the entrance.

Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong, a public health inspector, said the boys lost an average of 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) while they were trapped.

Dr Harris decided the order in which the boys could leave the cave, after conducting health assessments determining who needed to leave most urgently.

The police however never showed up, with a patrol auto at one point passing by the scene but failing to stop, eyewitnesses said. Coach Dalic spoke for an hour on Thursday back at the same Luzhniki Stadium where his team broke English hearts the day before.


"They thought they'd only be an hour", Banpot Korncam, father of the 13-year-old captain of the "Wild Boars" team, told media. He said they survived by drinking clean water dripping into the cave.

All are recovering at a hospital in northern Thailand's Chiang Rai province, where video showed several of them in seemingly good spirits, waving and flashing peace signs to the camera. Authorities have promised to provide them legal assistance in the nationality verification process and if there were no complications in their documents all of them will have Thai nationality within six months.

Footage released by the Thai Navy SEALs showed foreign and Thai divers using pulleys, ropes and rubber piping to haul stretchers bearing two of the barely moving young footballers to safety, their exit framed by the jagged cave overhead.

But he had denied they were knocked out for an operation the chief of the rescue had dubbed "mission impossible". "Of course, I'm very happy if the boys get Thai nationality, as they will be able to access full citizenship rights".

Otherwise, they can submit a bachelors degree or diploma or ask for a special grant from the Thai government to get Thai nationality, he said.

"Everyone is strong in mind and heart", he said at a news conference of officials involved in the rescue.

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

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