British Diver Who Helped Rescue Trapped Boys in Thailand Returns to UK

Or they could also apply by submitting their bachelor's degree or diploma, or ask for a special grant from the Thai government, the Thai media outlet said. In a grainy video captured on his GoPro camera that was later shown on TV news channels around the world, Volanthen told them: "Many people are coming".

"I was exhausted", he said. "I'm so happy he's safe". And helped him to have a new life, it's like a rebirth.

Around 6pm local time on Tuesday it was a moment of relief for loved ones when the last child emerged from the cave, safely followed by the 25-year-old coach. "Anyone can bring this card to show it to the doctors, so the doctor can be alerted to any kinds of diseases and take care of them, such as colds", Thongchai told reporters. They survived the nine days before they were found by drinking water dripping from the cave walls, officials said. "My job was to transfer them along". Parents are allowed to see them for 15 minutes at a time, three times a day.

France midfielder Paul Pogba called them "heroes of the day" and dedicated to them his country's 1-0 win over Belgium.

The story of the entrapment of the boys and their coach in the cave and their dramatic rescue has captivated people around the world.

But approaching wet weather forced the timeline to be moved up and the elite unit of Thai Navy Seals and foreign divers were forced to contend with thick mud and rising water.

In the video, one of the boys flashed a "victory" hand gesture.

"We will look for a way of securing citizenship for them", said Vitha Tachiboon, of Thailand's youth ministry.

Ropes were used inside the cave as gushing water made the escape even more unsafe for the Thai boys.

Police officers took photographs of each other at the massive cave entrance, as pumps continued to suck out huge volumes of water.

But they were prodded into the risky task of bringing the team through submerged chambers and claustrophobic passages as oxygen levels in the cave plummeted and rains menaced. He said, "The situation went beyond just being a rescue mission and became a symbol of unity among man". And the confidence of the diving team, and expertise specific to the cave, grew after its first successful mission Sunday.

At the final press conference for the rescue mission Wednesday, mission commander Narongsak Osotthanakorn paid tribute to Harris. "Without him, in this operation, I don't think we could have succeeded".

At a school opposite the hospital in Chiang Rai where the boys are recovering, schoolchildren were in an excited, celebratory mood. The process lasted hours for each boy, and involved them getting through long passageways barely bigger than an adult body. Lit by several beams of white light, the divers in wet suits and helmets are seen submerging themselves in the water and grabbing on to a metal dive line used to guide them through the winding channels of the six-mile cave.
