Boys rescued from cave mourn diver who died

Boys rescued from cave mourn diver who died

"They also thanked him and promised to be good boys", the statement said.

They fought against mother nature to pump out floodwater and divert water flows amid Thailand's wet monsoon season.

Experts have urged caution amid the global intrigue surrounding the boys' stories, saying they would all need to be monitored closely for signs of psychological distress that could take months to manifest and could be triggered by probing media interviews.

Speaking to reporters on home soil on Saturday, Dr Harris described the joy of the remarkable rescue mixed with the "bittersweet" feelings of the passing of his father.

The health ministry said the overall condition for the players and coach was "normal", though many are still on a course of antibiotics after spending days in the damp and dark trapped underground.

Deep inside the cave system, Dr Harris administered a mild sedative to the boys, ensuring the inexperienced swimmers didn't panic in the water, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Upon emerging from the cave on stretchers, the boys and their coach were whisked away in ambulances to Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital, where they have been recovering from the perilous experience and a variety of minor ailments. "Thank you everybody who support us and who send us inspiration".

"Our condolences to Dr Richard Harris".

Two boys who are part of the team but did not enter the cave told ABC News before the rescue operation that "Ake" had taken them into the cave many times in the past as a sort of rite of passage and team-building exercise.

"I would like to thank the SEALs for rescuing us", he continues.

Members of the

"Don't worry anymore. I am safe now", 13-year-old Panumas Saengdee said in Thai, per ABC.

The teenagers also asked if they could be sent some KFC.

They were discovered nine days later by two British divers, perched on a small ledge of dry land about 4 kilometers (2.5 miles) from the cave's entrance.

Thousands of people have called for Dr Harris and Mr Challen to be given the Cross of Valour, the nation's highest civilian bravery award.

"The favourable outcome that has been achieved is nearly beyond our imagination when we first became involved in this operation", they said.

The boys were told of his sacrifice only over the weekend, when doctors decided they were strong enough to process the news.

Australian Medical Association President Dr Tony Bartone said Harris risked his safety to help others and should be commended, said the ABC.

Tanawat Viboonrungruang, the father of the youngest boy, 11-year-old Chanin, told CNN on Friday that his son had just wanted to "visit the cave for an hour".

Members of the Thai Navy SEALs team arrived home to their base at Sattahip, feted by the Thai people but saddened by the loss of their colleague.
