THAILAND CAVE RESCUE: FIRST FOOTAGE EMERGES OF BOYS IN HOSPITAL

THAILAND CAVE RESCUE: FIRST FOOTAGE EMERGES OF BOYS IN HOSPITAL. A screen grab shows boys rescued from the Thai cave wearing masks and resting in a hospital in Chiang Rai, Thailand, on July 11, 2018. Reports say the boys and the coach were sedated to stop them panicking during the dangerous rescue. Divers who took part in the operation said the boys were heavily sedated to avoid anxiety as they went through the dark, narrow, underwater passageways. The complex, three-day rescue saw four boys emerge on Sunday, four on Monday, and the final four boys plus their coach on Tuesday. They survived the nine days before they were found by drinking water dripping from the cave walls, officials said.
