None of the children, aged between 11 and 16, were strong swimmers let alone competent divers.

"Suddenly the Australian guy who was overseeing that area started shouting that the water pump had stopped working", Chaiyananta told AFP.

Retired Coventry firefighter Rick Stanton, 56, said: 'It seems to have lifted the whole country.

"By the time the last diver was out the water was already at head level, nearly to the point where he needed an oxygen tank".

The worldwide bid to extract the team garnered attention from around the world after the team found themselves trapped on June 23 when they entered the cave after practice and were blocked by floodwaters. Moreover, Thailand Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-Cha confirmed the boys were given the drug "to make them not excited, not stressed", according to the Daily Mail.

Officials said the plight of the stranded boys and the heroic and successful multi-national efforts to free them has put the relatively unexplored cave squarely on the map.

Mr Volanthen's mother, Jill, said: "We are absolutely so proud, but my sympathy is with the wife and family of the diver who lost his life".

On Wednesday, they too were recovering, nursing battered hands and feet from wading through the cold water in the cave to reach the boys.
