New footage has been released of the mission to rescue twelve boys and their football coach from the Tham Luang cave in Chiang Rai.
The footage shows the boys on stretchers being brought out of the cave system.
The BBC reports the boys were heavily sedated to the point they were they were almost sleeping in order to avoid them panicking in the dark and confinements of the cave.
Citing a former SEAL diver with the Thai Navy, the BBC reported that some of the boys were asleep, while others were “groggy”.
Further footage released by the Thai Navy SEAL to Thai media also reveals the daring rescue mission.
Earlier it was reported how the water pumps used to drain water from the cave failed just moments after the last boy was evacuated.
“The screams started coming because the main pumps failed and the water started rising,” one of the divers said.
“All these headlights start coming over the hill and the water was coming … It was noticeably rising.”
The remaining 100 workers still in the cave then rushed for the exit as the water was noticeably rising.
On Wednesday morning, Thongchai Lertwilairattanapong, an inspector for Thailand’s health department, told reporters that the boys had on average lost around 2kg, but were otherwise in good health. Three of them were said to be suffering from minor lung infections.
