Twitter abuzz with jokes on Thai Cave rescue movie's 'whitewashing'

They were castoffs from school teams. Now the Wild Boars soccer squad is the talk of Thailand — and the world

Hospital director Chaiwetch Thanapaisal said all 13 rescued, including the boys' 25-year-old soccer coach, and four Thai Navy SEALs are "well".

The last group of the 12-member "Wild Boars" soccer team and their coach was brought out of the Tham Luang cave, near the border with Myanmar, on Tuesday night, safely ending a risky rescue and evoking worldwide relief and joy.

He realised, too, that if reaching the boys had been so complicated and perilous, extracting them would be even harder.

The IT tech said that the divers were not heroes and directed attention to the rest of his team and the Thai Navy Seals. "They talked to the boys far away from them, about 2 meters [6.5 feet]", Thongchai said.

The team became captured within a cave in Thailand on June 23 and survived for 18 long days before being miraculously rescued by a courageous group of worldwide divers.

The first boys rescued on Sunday have been allowed to see their relatives through a glass partition and speak to them on a telephone line.

The second group of boys rescued has been given approval to see their parents through glass, but the third group are still undergoing tests, he said. They will remain in hospital in the nearby city of Chiang Rai for a week, followed by a week's recuperation at home.

On Wednesday night, provincial governor and rescue commander, Narongsak Osatanakorn, appeared to imply in a public address that citizenship is a possibility for the four. He said they survived by drinking clean water dripping into the cave. To swim through the flooded tunnels, which could get as narrow as 15 inches, one diver held the front end of the stretcher, along with the boy's oxygen tank, while another held the rear end of the stretcher. "This mission was successful because of cooperation from everyone", he said. "Many, many people. We are the first".

Variety reports that Chu is teaming up on the movie with Ivanhoe Pictures, which is in contact with senior officials in Thailand about the rescue.

The Canadian, speaking to Reuters a day after the rescue ended, said he had no plans to dive again anytime soon.

Additionally, Kuo said Apple may release a new low-priced laptop, similar to the MacBook Air , but likely rebranded in a new way. Thunderbolt 3 via USB-C, support for up to two 5K displays or up to four external GPUs, and a sleek aluminum unibody design.

The fate of the boys has even resonated as far as Russian Federation, where soccer's World Cup is reaching its final stages. Players from France and England welcomed news of the rescue and sent their best wishes to the "Wild Boars" on Twitter.

The hope that the boys will stay out of the spotlight for some time was one shared by former mine foreman Luis Urzua, who was trapped in a mine in Chile for 69 days following a collapse.

"Amazing news that all of the Thai kids are out of the cave safely!"

The saga is reminiscent of the 2010 rescue of 33 Chilean miners who were trapped for 69 days, a tale that was turned into the 2015 movie "The 33" starring Antonio Banderas.
