The best of Twitter’s reactions to Trump meeting the Queen The schoolboys lost an average of 2kg (4.4lb) during their ordeal but are now in good condition and have shown no signs of stress, a senior health official said.
They were rescued by divers from Britain, the United States, Japan, Laos, Myanmar, China and Australia. There were also volunteers from Ukraine, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, Canada and Finland. The schoolboys lost an average of 2kg (4.4lb) during their ordeal but are now in good condition and have shown no signs of stress. Governor Narongsak told a press conference: ‘The children are neither heroes nor villains.
They’re simply kids having an accident. ‘Now that they’re known to millions of people, I believe they would contribute to the betterment of society in the future.’ Banphot Konkum, father of 13-year-old Duangpetch Promthep, said his son, also known by his nickname Dom, said the team members didn’t know rain had started falling after they had entered the cave on June 23.
But the rain caused flooding in the cave, blocking them from exiting. The schoolboys were trapped in the cave for 17 days. In their search for a safe haven, the boys were reported to have used their hands to feel the walls for an opening to take them to a higher, safer spot. Mr Banphot said: ‘After an hour when they wanted to leave, the water level was rising. They ran further inside the cave to escape from the water. The water flow was strong.’ In their search for a safe haven, the boys were reported to have used their hands to feel the walls for an opening to take them to a higher, safer spot.
Searchers later found what they thought were the boys’ handprints, giving them confidence the boys were alive and that the searchers were on the right path. Mr Banphot said: ‘They, all 13 of them, saw a small passage or a crawl space, so they all dug the hole to get through to another spot, until they found Nen Nom Sao.’ The teammates climbed higher, using their hands to feel the walls for a crawl space that would lead to safer, higher ground. Those handprints were among the first signs of where the boys were, what they had done to escape the floods, and what dangers rescuers would face in their mission to save the boys and their coach.
