But Adun's proficiency in languages - he speaks four - proved key inside the cave, as he acted as translator for the British divers during the complicated rescue.

"We brought the children out like eggs protected in stone", Apakorn said, referencing a Thai saying equivalent to "velvet glove".

Footage released by the SEAL team showed seemingly prone boys - at least one in full diving mask and wetsuit - being stretchered along the jagged passageways.

The group were taken out in three batches by a team of 13 worldwide divers flanked by the Thai Navy SEALs, who greeted each successful rescue with a "Hooyah" on their Facebook page. "I'm looking forward to staying out of the water for a bit. It was slippery in parts and the deepest water we had to wade through was up to my chest".

Derek Anderson, a 32-year-old rescue specialist with the U.S. Air Force based in Okinawa, Japan, said the dozen boys, ranging in age from 11 to 16, and their coach, who were trapped for more than two weeks before being rescued this week, were "incredibly resilient". They were carried by stretcher in the compartments that hadn't flooded.

"We just helped them with the stretchers and got them through the rocks and passed them to the next team", Schnauer told Newshub. No, we were just using a very unique skill set, which we normally use for our own interests and sometimes we are able to use that and give something back to the community. "You can't blame the coach and you can't blame the kids", Thongchai said.

Apple Just Killed My Favorite MacBook Pro
On top of those weighty responsibilities, the T2 lets the new MacBook Pros handle "Hey Siri" invocations for the first time. Apple's Macbook Pro keyboard design has been under fire recently for its rate of failure and high cost to replace.

"To be honest, I didn't notice anything about the boys, I was too anxious about where to put my feet and making sure I had a tight grip of the stretcher".

A second movie is being developed on the rescue of the 12 Thai footballers and their coach from a flooded cave after an 18-day ordeal, reports said. As they were coming down the slope, we were counting them until we got to 13. unbelievable, ' he said. "It was pretty impressive", he said.

Schnauer admitted he had only played a "small role" in the effort and paid tribute to the impressive duration which the rescue divers were underwater in the cave network. "I have never done anything like this as I don't like caves".

"He's got a very bouncy Australian accent, and they seemed to find that quite relaxing and reassuring".

"We were pleased and very relieved that they were alive", Volanthen said.

With the crucial acquisition of Chu - known as the director of Now You See Me 2, G.I. Joe: Retaliation and the Step Up sequels - Ivanhoe's version of the Thai cave rescue story will likely manifest as the more prominent picture amongst what could become an array of adaptations. He told Reuters it would likely be hard for the boys to deal with the influx of attention from the media, politicians and people looking to financially profit off the ordeal.
