Thai Boys Who Were Rescued From Cave Set To Be Released From Hospital Today

Thai Boys Who Were Rescued From Cave Set To Be Released From Hospital Today

The 12 Thai boys and their 25-year-old coach who were trapped in a cave will be released from hospital today, the BBC reports.

The Wild Boars are set to be sent home a day earlier than originally planned. That is just eight days after the last of the group were rescued from the caves in the incredible rescue mission.

The team are set to address the media together later during a live-televised press conference in Chiang Rai.

Chief government spokesman Sunsern Kaewkumnerd said: "The reason to hold this evening press conference is so media can ask them questions and after that they can go back to live their normal lives without media bothering them."

Journalists have been warned to be 'cautious' when asking questions and told that all questions will be screened by a child psychiatrist to ensure the boys are not psychologically damaged by what they're asked.

Earlier this week it was reported that doctors had told the families of the boys to avoid contact with media for 'at least a month' after being discharged to avoid adding additional trauma to the youngsters.

Thai Boys Wave From Hospital In First Footage Since Being Rescued From Cave

The boys and their coach are said to be in good health, both mentally and physically, but health officials have said there will be ongoing psychological monitoring of the group to keep an eye out for any potential 'lingering trauma'.

The boys, aged between 11 and 16, spent over two weeks in a cave after a planned excursion went wrong and they become trapped due to heavy rainfall. They spent nine days huddled together on a ledge before they were found by a group of British divers, and rescue efforts to extract them began.

In total, three missions were carried out to get the entire group out, after which they were sent directly to hospital to be checked over.

Speaking from their hospital beds last week, the boys thanked people around the world for their support as well as the efforts of the rescue teams and the Thai Navy Seals.

They also spoke about the food they were most looking forward to eating once they had been given the all-clear and could go home, with Tee, real name Pornchai Khamlunag, saying: "I want to fried rice with crispy pork."

Another boy said he couldn't wait to eat sushi, and another added that he fancied a trip to KFC. Enjoy, guys.
