Thailand cave rescue to be turned into Hollywood movie

Thailand cave rescue to be turned into Hollywood movie

The global team that successfully rescued 12 Thai boys and their football coach from a flooded cave in Chiang Rai province had to think twice before making decisions, the chief of the mission, Mr Narongsak Osotthanakorn, said on Wednesday (July 11). On Tuesday, the final four boys and their coach were guided out of the cave.

In his letter, Ake apologised to the parents for taking the boys into the cave network, but several replied to say they did not blame him.

"Narongsak Osottanakorn said at a news conference that the Tham Luang cavern system in the country's Chiang Rai province will become an interactive exhibit to showcase the rescue, according to Reuters".

Pearce said Harris had "given his all, his family have given the support and we've given the support as well as an organization".

Jedsada Chokdumrongsuk, permanent secretary at the Public Health Ministry, said the boys rescued on Sunday were able to eat normal food by Tuesday, though they couldn't yet take the spicy dishes favored by many Thais.

The boys would have to stay in hospital for up to 10 days, hospital director Chaiwetch Thanapaisal told the news conference.

Another video released on Facebook by Thailand's Navy SEALs, who were central to the rescue, apparently shows one of the boys being carried through part of the muddy cave on a stretcher covered by an emergency thermal blanket. Three of the boys are being treated for minor lung infections.

"The world just needs to know that what was accomplished was a once in a lifetime rescue", Anderson told The Associated Press in an interview on Wednesday.

Risks such as the boys' deteriorating physical condition and the possibility of life-saving equipment breaking down mid-mission made the rescue effort particularly unsafe, Hodges said.

Former Thai navy diver Saman Gunan died while helping to bring through more air tanks for the boys. "If this place had a roof, the morale has gone straight through it", he said.

The last rescued boys and their coach arrive at Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital on Tuesday in Chiang Rai, Thailand.

Sadly, the boys and their coach had to decline under orders from their doctors to remain in the hospital for seven days for monitoring. "Such a lovely moment - all freed, great job!" He added that he believed the children will be contributing back to society when they grow up.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected", the team's Twitter account said.

With the World Cup reaching its climax, Federation Internationale de Football Association invited the Wild Boars to attend Sunday's final in Moscow between France and the victor of Wednesday's England-Croatia match.

Pure Flix Entertainment, an Arizona-based Christian film studio, said it's seeking the movie rights to the harrowing mission to rescue the soccer team and their 25-year-old coach from the flooded cave. However, doctors treating the boys said it was too soon for them to make the trip.
