He thanked the pairs' families for dealing with the media and the "worry we caused them" as well as sending "heartfelt condolences" to the family of former Thai Navy SEAL Saman Gunan who died during the rescue efforts. The four are technically not citizens of Thailand. I think it was the result of an global team of military and civilian divers working alongside the Thai Navy.

The four boys rescued Sunday have normal heart rates and no fever, and the two of them with lung infections are improving, said Jedsada Chokdumrongsuk, permanent secretary of the Public Health Ministry.

The boys, whose ages range from 11 to 16, and their coach, Ekaphol "Ake" Chantawong, 25, remained in isolation wards in hospital.

"Great work and we really appreciate it", a Thai military official said as he bestowed on the men the souvenir medals during a ceremony at Chiang Rai airport. He said, "The situation went beyond just being a rescue mission and became a symbol of unity among man".

"They are the toughest blokes and kids I've ever had the privilege to meet", Dr Harris told prime minister in a Facetime call earlier this week. It is still undecided whether they will be open all year round given the perils of monsoon season.

Chu took to Twitter to give his thoughts on this project and said, "I refuse to let Hollywood #whitewashout the Thai Cave rescue story!"

Derek Anderson, a 32-year-old rescue specialist with the US Air Force based in Okinawa, Japan, said the dozen boys and their coach were "incredibly resilient".

Now, Chu is attached to direct a film under Ivanhoe Pictures based on the news story that captured the attention of the world, Deadline reports.

"No way. Not on our watch".

"We couldn't see them initially - they had to come round the corner".

"There's a attractive story about human beings saving other human beings. So anyone thinking abt the story better approach it right & respectfully".

The trapped group in Thailand have now all been rescued from the cave, and are now recuperating in hospital.

They were found by British divers after nine days, and were eventually rescued days after in an operation that involved dozens of divers and hundreds of other rescue workers.

He spoke of how the British diving team, which also included John Volanthen, Chris Jewel, Jason Mallinson, Connor Roe, Josh Bratchley, Jim Warny, Mike Clayton and Gary Mitchell - all highly-trained cave divers - felt as they headed to the rescue mission.
