Footage from inside Thailand cave shows trapped boys' escape route

The latest images come just hours after the remaining pupils and their football coach were rescued on Tuesday after becoming trapped in a cave for more than two weeks when heavy rainfall blocked their exit.

The Thai hospital where the 12 boys and their soccer coach are recuperating after being rescued from a flooded cave has released video showing them in their hospital beds, smiling and chatting with nurses.The video shows the boys in an isolation ward in beds with crisp white sheets and wearing green surgical masks.

Questions will remain as to why the team, led by their 25-year-old coach, went into the caves during the rainy season - it is common knowledge that it is a risky time to enter, and signs at the entrance specifically warn of the dangers of monsoon rains. Before their discovery, they survived by drinking water dripping into their cramped refuge.

They were lost for nine days before British rescue divers discovered them on July 2, sitting on a ledge in a half-flooded chamber.

Adisak Wongsukchan told Al Jazeera he gave his 14-year-old son Nong Bew a big thumbs up when he first saw him in hospital.

He said: 'The important thing is... personal space.

"We don't see the children as at fault or as heroes".

A high-risk global mission ensued and the group was eventually rescued.

Another video released on Facebook by Thailand's Navy SEALs, who were central to the rescue, apparently shows one of the boys being carried through part of the muddy cave on a stretcher covered by an emergency thermal blanket.

"Some of them were asleep, some of them were wiggling their fingers". The diver who spoke to AFP said the boys were "groggy" but "breathing" when he helped to pull them out, while the BBC reported that according to divers, the boys were "heavily sedated to avoid anxiety".

The children were kept in special full-face diving masks even over the dry sections because of dwindling oxygen underground.

"My wife actually grew up with the Thai Navy SEAL that died in the cave".

First, filmmakers need to secure the rights from each of the boys' families, the coach, and any rescuers they want to portray in order to get their firsthand accounts of what happened.

The dramatic rescue operation dominated front-page headlines in Thailand.

"It was mostly a matter of clambering through mud, which was very tough", Ben Reymenants said.

We're already on the edge of our seat.

Ivanhoe Pictures president John Penotti on Wednesday issued a statement saying that Thailand's Navy and government had selected the company for the film adaptation of the almost three-week ordeal.

Christian film production company Pure Flix was also reportedly looking to create a film based on the story of the Wild Boars.

"We did something nobody thought possible", the acting governor of Chiang Rai province, Narongsak Osatanakorn, said once the 18-day ordeal was over.
