To the relief of the rescue workers, the weather has so far remained dry, although low clouds hang over the top of the Doi Nang Non mountain range where the cave is located. The boys have been pictured smiling and waving in hospital and are said to be healthy and recovering. After 10 days missing the ThamgLuang cave in Chiang Rai province, 12 children and their football coach have been found alive, according to the Chiang Rai governor. They will be monitored to make sure they are mentally strong enough. There is no indication Osottanakorn has ever studied abroad.
Officials said the boys know the site well and have visited it many times before, buoying hopes that they might have trekked to a large airy chamber in the centre.
