Thai soccer players set to go home next week

Thai soccer players set to go home next week

Adul Samon, a stateless 14-year-old sent to Thailand for schooling by his ethnic minority parents across the border in Myanmar, spoke in Thai and then in English: "Hello, I am Adul".

The boys, aged 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach had planned to explore the cavern complex for about an hour after soccer practice on June 23.

It had been suggested by some that the boys and their coach entering the caves during the rainy season was a reckless decision.

Adul is perhaps the best known of the boys because he was the one speaking English in the video taken inside the cave when the team members were first found by two British cave divers on July 2, almost 10 days after being trapped by flooding.

A team from around the world staged a spectacular rescue earlier this week.

The health ministry said the overall condition for the players and coach was normal, though many are still on a course of antibiotics.

After the patients are discharged, the hospital will deploy its "family care team" to follow up and help care for them until they make a full recovery, physically and mentally.

USA unlikely to reunite all immigrant families on time: ACLU
The separations were in place from early May until Trump stopped the practice last month in the face of intense criticism. USA authorities confirmed through DNA testing on March 12 that the woman was the girl's mother and the two were reunited.

All will be discharged from hospital in the northern town of Chiang Rai on Thursday, he said.

Some of the boys lost as much as 5 kg (11 lb) but had started to regain weight in hospital, Piyasakol told reporters.

Photos have been released by the Thai Health Ministry that show some of the boys with their heads bowed around a table with a picture of former Petty Officer Saman on it. I am very thank you for help me.

"The boys all promised to be a good person and lead a good life to honour him".

The story is already set for a retelling by Hollywood, with two production companies looking to put together movies about the boys and their rescue.

Piyasakol said family members no longer need to wear surgical masks when visiting the patients and can now stay at their bedsides, rather than being kept at a distance - a protection against infection which doctors instituted in the first days after the group was hospitalized. They want the boys to instead relax at their homes for the next month.

"Despite all this incredible technology, in the end it took people working together...for this one unifying goal", said American caver Josh Harris, 42, who worked as liaison between the foreign divers and the Thais.
