Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osatanakorn announced on Monday that the boys, aged 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach were being rescued from Tham Luang Nang Non cave after they were discovered by naval special forces and the challenge now will be to extract the party safely.

Heavy rains had flooded the Tham Luang cave blocking the football team in after they first entered on June 23.

Volanthen, an IT consultant in his 40s who is based in Bristol, and Stanton, a firefighter from Coventry who is in his 50s, reached the group nine days after they went missing. "We saw that he gave his life for this cause". It was nice to be a part of that and I would do it again given the option.

The first video has emerged showing some of the 12 boys receiving treatment in a hospital after surviving more than two weeks inside a partly flooded cave in northern Thailand.

Wet and cold, some of the boys fell asleep as they were hauled along to the exit, but there were more than 100 people stationed along this section, including nurses who checked their temperature, blood pressure, pulse and oxygen levels.

"They are the toughest blokes and kids I have ever had the privilege to meet", he said in a conversation with the Prime Minister.

In the cavern, one-by-one, the boys were fitted with 5mm-thick wetsuits and full-face scuba masks.

Maj Gen Chalongchai Chaiyakham, the deputy commander to the Third Army, said Wednesday that the mini-submarine would be appropriate for use in open water and that he had heard the technology would be given to the Thai navy Seal team.

"We made them relaxed and calm and slowly moved them out".

"They were making progress, but it was very little progress and they were exhausting themselves spending maybe five or six hours and covering 40 or 50 meters (yards)".

"It was mostly a matter of clambering through mud, which was very tough", Ben Reymenants said. Some of the boys have already been visited by family.

Ivanhoe Pictures president John Penotti stated on Wednesday that his production company was selected by the Thai government to produce a film about the 12 Thai soccer players and their coach trapped in a cave after a flash flood in the area.

Concerns over whitewashing grew so strong that Crazy Rich Asians director John M. Chu chose to take matters into his own hands.

Matcha Phoru-in, an activist who works with undocumented refugees in northern Thailand, told Reuters that people who are stateless aren't recognized as citizens of any country, are usually poor, and have restricted travel, work and benefits rights. The boys are expected to be released within seven days barring complications.

He told the Mail, "We were extremely fortunate that the outcome was the way it was".
