INCREDIBLE FOOTAGE: New Video Captures Daring Operation That Rescued 12 Boys Trapped In Thai Cave

The Thai Navy SEALs have released footage showing the inside of the Thai cave when the rescue operation was underway.

The footage shows the operation to rescue the 12 Thai boys and their coach trapped in a partially flooded cave.

The complex, three-day rescue saw four boys emerge on Sunday, four on Monday, and the final four boys plus their coach on Tuesday.

The boys are seen being carried through the cave system on stretches and covered in protective foil.

The ordeal began more than two weeks ago, when the 12 boys and their soccer coach became trapped 2 and a half miles inside a complex cave system by fast-moving flood waters. As oxygen levels in the cave dropped and a new round of monsoon rains threatened to raise floodwaters, divers rushed in to rescue the boys. They were taken out in three groups, over 72 hours.

According to officials, the boys are doing well, in part because they stayed hydrated by drinking water dripping from the cave ceiling. They are now all being monitored for disease and infections.

Health officials said the boys are also doing well mentally. Perhaps because they stayed together, the official said, adding that the coach who took care of them should be admired.

Officials said the boys were given anti-anxiety pills to help keep them calm during their rescue. All of the boys and their coach are expected to be kept at the hospital through the weekend.

It may come as no surprise that the story of their rescue may become a movie. Film producers have been on the ground in Thailand scouting.
