An ambulance carrying rescued schoolboys leaves from Tham Luang cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai Thailand

At one point, a boy can be seen waving his hand slightly and gripping his fingers into a fist, suggesting they were not completely unconscious.

Onlookers at the junction in front of Chiangrai Prachanukroh Hospital watch and cheer as ambulances transport the last rescued schoolboys and their coach, July 10, 2018, in Chiang Rai, Thailand.

Members of the "Wild Boars" soccer team, who range in age from 12 to 16, and their coach became trapped after a rainy season downpour turned a cave adventure in the northern province of Chiang Rai into a nightmare, flooding the tunnels and making it impossible to leave.

Thongchai Lertwilairatanapong, a public health inspector, said earlier Tuesday that the boys lost an average of 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) while they were trapped.

Two of the first group had lung infection as well, and will need medicine for the next seven days.

Pure Flix Entertainment, an Arizona-based Christian film studio, said it's seeking the movie rights to the harrowing mission to rescue the soccer team and their 25-year-old coach from the flooded cave.

The boys and their coach went missing after football practice on June 23, setting out on an adventure to explore the cave complex near the border with Myanmar and celebrate a boy's birthday.

Another video released on Facebook by Thailand's Navy SEALs, who were central to the rescue, apparently shows one of the boys being carried through part of the muddy cave on a stretcher covered by an emergency thermal blanket.

Although the boys spent nine days without food and more than two weeks in the dark, damp cave, they seem to be in good health.

Scott's wife has been involved with planning the funeral for Saman Kunan, the former SEAL that died on July 6 while helping install oxygen tanks in preparation for the extraction. "I want to say thanks to those who rescued my boy".

Thailand spent yesterday celebrating the successful mission.

Police officers took photographs of each other at the massive cave entrance, as pumps continued to suck out huge volumes of water. They were all were rushed to the hospital mostly because of fear of infection. Before their discovery, they survived by drinking water dripping into their cramped refuge.

Tense footage of the incredible Thailand rescue has highlighted just how unsafe the path to safety was for the 12 boys. Officials also said they are taking less medication, and can eat anything they want - good news for the boys who were looking forward to fried rice with basil.

"As you can imagine from what's been in the media all week it is not a holiday that Harry has been on", Pearce said.

Dr Harris was supposed to be on holiday at the time of the rescue, but cancelled it to come to the aid of the Wild Boars football team.
