New navy video shows boys in Thailand cave laughing, in good health

However, the Tham Luang Nang Non cave has proved hard for even the rescue divers to navigate.

The boys and their coach are not in danger of drowning. They disappeared when flooding trapped them after entering the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in Chiang Rai on June 23.

"We will continue to support the Thai Navy SEALS in the best way we can".

His team members "have given the boys food, starting from easily digested and high-powered food with enough minerals", he said at a news conferece.

Experts have cautioned that any attempt to traverse the confined passages will be fraught with difficulties and potential complications, especially if the children can't swim.

Rescuers are left wondering how to get them out of the cave?

"But if that doesn't work, with the seasonal rain, we'll do it another way", he told reporters.

The governor said that requests had been made to build "infrastructure" in the cave leading to the pocket where the teenagers and their coach are located.

In a video posted by the Thai navy on its Facebook page, the boys are seen huddled on a rock in mud-stained T-shirts and shorts surrounded by water.

The boys were discovered at about 10:00pm (1500 GMT) on Monday by British divers some 400 metres (1,300 feet) from where they were believed to be stranded several kilometres inside the cave.

One of the boys, noticing the camera and hearing words they don't immediately understand, says in Thai, "Oh, they want to take a picture; tell him we're hungry".

Vice-chairman Bill Whitehouse said: "It was euphoria for a moment, but it's not going to be easy to get 13 people out of a flooded cave".

One boy replies: "Oh".

CIMON is capable of nodding in response to questions and will be able to zoom up to astronauts when being called by its name. The space station and its six inhabitants were sailing 250 miles above the South Pacific when the Falcon 9 took off.

Again, the boys need to spend time getting stronger in the depths of the cave before they can attempt to climb up a second entry - if one is found - or be lifted out.

Despite the peril ahead, families and friends, some of whom have maintained a constant vigil outside the cave, hugged each other and cheered at the news.

Thailand's Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said of the boys' discovery that "everybody is a hero".

Rescuers located the boys, aged 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach alive deep inside the partially flooded cave in northern Thailand late Monday.

Thailand is now in the midst of its monsoon season, and while Monday was relatively dry, the rains returned on Tuesday.

They had been cut off when a flash flood from sudden heavy rain locked them in, with no shoes and no food and just one flash light which soon ran out. A thousand people at least are involved in the rescue effort, with help coming from around the globe, but technology is struggling to overcome the geology of the Tham Luang cave complex.

Except for narrow holes, two divers would escort each of the boys.

The base camp set up to service rescue workers - and the hundreds of journalists from around the world who have descended on the muddy site.

Bringing the trapped boys to safety is an extremely risky task given the conditions inside. Surawan's reference to four months has been interpreted as a potential sign that authorities are considering waiting until the rainy season ends in October.

While there has been great relief and celebrations across the country at the news that all 12 boys, aged between 11 and 16, and their 25-year-old coach are alive and in relatively good health, removing them from the cave network safely presents huge challenges for the worldwide rescue dive teams. Other rescue teams are searching the mountainsides for another entrance to the cave.

He said that upon rescue, the boys would at first not be able to move their limbs, adding that medical teams would be able to treat them in place.

Tinnakorn Boonpiem, whose 12-year-old son Mongkol is among the 13, told Agence France-Presse she was "so glad" to hear they were safe.
