A video has been released by the Thai hospital where the twelve young footballers and their soccer coach are recuperating after being rescued from a flooded cave.
The video shows all boys in their hospital beds, chatting with nurses and making two-finger victory sign while wearing green surgical masks.
The parents are also seen crying and waving to them from behind the window glass.
Health officials said two of the boys who arrived at the hospital had contracted lung infections but were receiving the medicine, news agency AP reported.
On June 23, a group of twelve young boys aged between 11 to 16 of a local junior football team named the "Wild Boards" went missing in Tham Luang located beneath the Doi Nang Non mountain on the border between Thailand and Myanmar.
The complex efforts to get the "Wild Boars" out of the cave successfully ended on Tuesday after meticulous planning, cooperation.
The rescue work was hampered several times during the period due to the heavy rains and difficult navigation systems because of the narrow passages and winding tunnels.
