Thai Soccer Team Shown Safe in Hospital in First Footage Since Rescue

Scott believes the cave rescue story, which will be centred around the two British divers who discovered the boys, is the ideal project for Pure Flix.

The Tham Luang cave is one of the largest cave systems in Thailand.

The final four boys and their 25-year-old coach were evacuated from the cave by a team of Thai Navy SEALs and global cave diving experts with just a few hours to spare before pumps holding the floodwaters failed.

"They are not Thai citizens", Weenat told Reuters, adding that officials were checking to see if they qualified for citizenship.

Doctors have put the 12 boys, aged 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old football coach in quarantine while they are being tested for infectious diseases they may have contracted inside the Tham Luang cave complex. It lies under the mountains around the small town of Mae Sai, in northern Chiang Rai province on the border with Myanmar.

The area is largely undeveloped with only limited tourism facilities.

Rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters today that the entire operation would not have been possible without the unique skills that Harris brought to the mission, though he did not elaborate.

"An interactive database will be set up", he said.

Rescuers had weighed up several options to save the boys, including keeping them in the cave through the months-long monsoon season.

Plans to turn the rescue operation into a movie are also in the works, with two production companies racing to turn the extraordinary story into a film. "There was only a tiny bit of hope, but that's all we had to work with".

At U-Tapao civil-military airport in Rayong province, near where the Royal Thai Navy operates out of Sattahip Naval Base, Thai navy SEALs and some foreign military personnel were given a hero's' welcome when they touched down on Thursday.

"We had a little bit of hope that they might still be alive but we had to do it, we just had to move forward", Rear Adm Arpakorn Yuukongkaew said.

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.

Now, numerous Thais on social media are saying the boys and their coach should be given citizenship following their ordeal. Chu said on Twitter.

"No way. Not on our watch". That won't happen or we'll give them hell.

Chu, a Chinese-American born in California, added: "There's a attractive story abt human beings saving other human beings".

A Belgian rescue diver involved in the operation told Dutch broadcaster NOS that ultimately not much diving was required on the way out, because a lot of water had been pumped out of the cave.

The nerve-shredding three-day operation ended on Tuesday when the final members of the "Wild Boars" were freed from the cave which had held them captive since June 23.

The worldwide 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.

"The recovery process should take around 30 days after they are discharged", he added.
