A three-day international rescue operation to extract 12 young boys and their football coach from the Tham Luang cave ended on a high note on Tuesday, 10 July
Yesterday, 11 July, the first video of the group in recovery was shown at a news conference by rescue mission chief Narongsak Osottanakorn
In the video, eight of the 12 young boys can be seen wearing surgical masks and lying on hospital beds in a large room. A few of them showed peace signs and waved to the camera.
The other four boys and their football coach were not in the room at the time.
The boys are currently being quarantined from their parents to avoid a risk of infection and will likely stay in the hospital for a week
Osottanakorn made assurances that there is no need to worry about the physical and mental health of the 13 'Wild Boars' as they are recovering well
