TANG CHHIN SOTHY/AFP/Getty Images Motorists pass by a billboard displaying a photograph of the "Wild Boar" soccer team and their assistant coach with a message reading "Welcome home, brothers" in Chiang Rai on July 10, 2018, following their rescue.

"We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what".

"All 12 "Wild Boars" and coach have been extracted from the cave", the SEALs said in a Facebook post. In a drama that has received press coverage across the world, two British cave rescue specialists, workign with Thai military teams, found the 13 on a bank in a partly flooded chamber several kilometers inside the complex on Monday, last week.

Jedsada Chokdumrongsuk, permanent secretary at the Public Health Ministry, said the first four boys rescued, aged 12 to 16, are now able to eat normal food.

In a day of high drama, the remaining five boys emerged in groups as evening approached, guided out by worldwide divers and the Seals, who have played an integral role throughout an unprecedented rescue mission.

"I remember all of their faces, especially the youngest one". "I'm so happy the children came out safely".

He added that the team would be working to support Harris and his family, and requested they be given time and space to grieve.

It's been more than two weeks since the 12 boys and their soccer coach became trapped in the flooded Tham Luang cave at the Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park in Chiang Rai.


"Nobody thought we could do it".

Theresa May said the "world was watching and will be saluting the bravery of all those involved". "It was Mission Possible for Team Thailand". The power of love.

Officials heading the rescue operation had said they were preparing a third rescue mission.

People across Thailand, and the world, have cheered the rescue operation, including at the Mae Sai Prasitsart school where six of the trapped boys are students. US military personnel also helped.

Managing partner Michael Scott, who lives in Thailand and was at the rescue site in Chiang Rai as the boys were being pulled to safety, made the announcement late Tuesday on Twitter.

"Such a attractive moment - all freed, great job!" Four boys and the coach are still deep inside, and authorities have indicated they're continuing with their so-far successful effort to bring the boys out guided by experienced divers.

One of the boys from the last group rescued Tuesday had a lung infection, a health official said.

Divers who took part in the operation said the boys were heavily sedated to avoid anxiety as they went through the dark, narrow, underwater passageways.
