Footage of the remarkable Thailand rescue on Wednesday showed members of the group trapped in a cave being stretchered to freedom whilst seemingly heavily sedated and wearing wetsuits and diving gear.

The footage, released on the Thai Navy SEALs Facebook page, shows a complex operation with numerous divers -- both foreign and Thai -- using pulleys, ropes and rubber piping to haul members of the football team to safety.

Thai authorities on Wednesday also released the first footage of several boys from a football team recovering in hospital after they were rescued from a flooded cave.

The boys are wearing face masks, but appear in good health, nodding to the camera and making hand gestures, according to the footage released by the Government Public Relations department.
