Thai cave boys to leave hospital Thursday

The hospital has said that the boys are mostly healthy, aside from some minor infections.

The intricate, high-risk operation which rescued the boys involved 19 divers, a medic and three Thai Navy SEALs who have stayed with the boys on a small, dry shelf deep in the flooded cave.

The boys' 25-year-old coach, Ekapol Chanthawong, gave his thanks to doctors, the Royal Thai Navy and the prime minister.

Medics said the boys were only considered mentally strong enough on Saturday to hear the news of Mr Kunan.

'All of the boys cried and were in tears when they found out. One Thai Navy SEAL died trying to save the group.

This footage shows a glimpse at the boys in their beds, as well as teary-eyed parents and other relatives waving at them from behind a nearby glass wall.

He was ordered the Knight Grand Cross (First Class) and given the medal of the Most Exalted Order of the White Elephant.

France play Croatia in the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday, at 10pm in Thailand.

"Given that the final will be broadcast quite late our time and we want the boys to rest and not to be looking at screens too much, we will probably record the final and show it to them later", a Chiang Rai Prachanukroh Hospital official said in a statement, via ESPN.

CHIANG RAI, Thailand-The 12 boys and their soccer coach rescued from a flooded cave in northern Thailand are recovering well and are eager to eat their favorite comfort foods after their expected discharge from a hospital next week.

The footage of the boys from a Saturday news conference shows them still wearing surgical masks, a safeguard against infection since the last of them was pulled from a cave on Tuesday after being trapped for nearly three weeks.

A team from around the world staged a spectacular rescue earlier this week.

Adul is perhaps the best known of the boys because he was the one speaking English in the video taken inside the cave when the team members were first found by two British cave divers on July 2, almost 10 days after being trapped by flooding.

Last week, Manchester United invited the "Wild Boars" to watch a match at their Old Trafford ground and the Benfica football club offered a one-week stint at their training academy in Portugal. About 4,000 volunteers on Sunday were taking part in a clean-up of the area around the Tham Luan Nang Non cave.

While the cave system has been closed, officials have said it could be reopened as a tourist attraction - with strict safeguards to prevent future disasters.
