Thailand's prime minister, Prayuth Chan-o-cha, said the boys were given anti-anxiety medication to help with their rescue.

The three Australian divers stationed at "chamber three", a base inside the cave, said they heard screaming and saw a rush of head torches from deeper inside the tunnel as workers scrambled to reach dry ground, the Guardian reported.

All 12 boys, as well as their soccer coach, remain quarantined at Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital. "I have to praise the coach who took care of the footballers very well", Lertvirairatanapong said. He said they survived by drinking clean water dripping into the cave.
