They walked us down to the vast entrance to the cave through ankle-deep water.
Jedsada Chokdumrongsuk, permanent secretary at the Public Health Ministry, said the boys rescued Sunday were able to eat normal food by Tuesday, though they couldn't yet take the spicy dishes favored by many Thais. "It is made of rocket parts & named Wild Boar after kids' soccer team". And the confidence of the diving team, and expertise specific to the cave, grew after its first successful mission Sunday. Highlighting the dangers, a former Thai navy SEAL volunteering to work on the rescue efforts died Friday while replenishing oxygen canisters that were placed along the escape route.
Experts warned that drinking contaminated water or otherwise being exposed to bird or bat droppings in the cave could lead to unsafe infections.
Despite all the risks associated with the rescue, she says she never had any doubt that the boys would all make it out.
Worldwide rescue teams had worked around the clock after the boys were discovered by British divers, to try to drain the caves enough to rescue them.
For the first half of the journey back, the boys were forced to wade or dive through flooded passes for as much as 10 to 15 minutes underwater at a time.
Two of the boys had suspected lung infections but the four boys from the first group rescued were all walking around in hospital.
Amid jubilation, 4 more boys rescued from flooded Thai cave Thai authorities revealed that the first phase was executed "smoothly" and the boys who had been evacuated were in "good health". The most touching note came from one whose name was not clear: "I'm doing fine, but the air is a little cold, but don't worry.
Officials said the boys, many of whom had never learned to swim, were given anti-anxiety medication to keep them calm. "Everyone is in high spirits and are happy to get out".
The whole world watched the daring rescue this week of the Wild Boars soccer team in remote northern Thailand. They have had to stay away from their parents and other people for fear of infection.
Jesada Chokdumrongsuk said that the boys are "healthy and smiling", he added: "the kids are footballers so they have high immune systems".
All 13 would be kept in quarantine at the hospital for seven days and their health would be monitored for seven more days after being discharged.
Club president Luis Filipe Vieira wrote to the Thai ambassador to Portugal to invite the boys to the camp in Seixal across the River Tagus from the capital, a club statement said on Tuesday. "Such a lovely moment - all freed, great job!"
The idea for that invitation which was spread over several days came from Bobby Charlton - one of those who survived the crash and also came from a mining community - and 23 of the miners eventually went, with the visit culminating in them watching the team play Arsenal.
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. Each of the nine chambers had a doctor waiting, and the boys were evaluated at each chamber.
