Eight boys of the youth soccer team have been rescued in past two days after they were trapped for more than two weeks in a flooded cave in northern Thailand.
“The kids are footballers so they have high immune systems,” Jesada said. “Everyone is in high spirits and are happy to get out. But we will have a psychiatrist to evaluate them. It could be at least seven days before they can be released from hospital,” Jesada told a news conference.
It was clear doctors were taking a cautious approach. Doctors were uncertain about type of infections the boys could face “because we have never experienced this kind of issue from a deep cave.”
Meanwhile the officials have resumed the final mission to rescue the remaining four players and their 25 year old coach, who are still in the cave. Officials are hoping to bring all five to safety today.
