about the video
Authorities have released video showing the Thai youth football team and their coach, who were trapped in a flooded cave complex for more than a week, kicking soccer balls with their rescuers before leaving the hospital on Wednesday. Members of the Wild Boars soccer academy were smiling and laughing while kicking balls with a Thai navy SEAL and an army doctor who accompanied them inside the cave before their rescue. On Wednesday night the boys were discharged from hospital and sent home to their families. The group entered the Tham Luang cave on June 23 but soon became trapped by flooding. Divers found them 10 days later and they were rescued during a delicate operation beginning on July 10. (Muhammed Asad)
