The 12 boys rescued from a flooded Thai cave this week are expected to be discharged from the hospital Thursday, medical officials said Saturday.
A handout photo made available by the Thai government public relations department (PRD) on July 11, 2018 shows the first pictures of the boys from a youth soccer team as they are treated at the hospital in Chiang Rai. Nearly immediately after they entered the caverns, a torrential seasonal downpour flooded the systems behind them, trapping them deep within the caves. "Don't worry about me now, I'm safe", said 15-year-old Pipat Photi.
Two British divers found them on July 2, squatting on a mound in a flooded chamber several kilometres inside the cave complex.
Two boys who are part of the team but did not enter the cave told ABC News before the rescue operation that "Ake" had taken them into the cave many times in the past as a sort of rite of passage and team-building exercise.
