Newly released footage captures the rescue of Thai youth soccer players from inside the flooded cave where they'd been trapped - showing they were hauled out in stretchers through at least part of the soggy, craggy caverns.
Rescue chief Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters today that the entire operation would not have been possible without the unique skills that Harris brought to the mission, though he did not elaborate.
"We don't see the children as at fault or as heroes".
"When the time is right, and everyone involved is ready I'd personally like to invite the children and the coach to attend a La Liga match" in Spain, president Javier Tebas said in a statement Wednesday. They were flown by helicopter to join their teammates in quarantine at the Chiang Rai hospital.
The boys' families can visit them wearing protective gowns and masks, it added. Some sat and made the "peace sign" gesture for the camera.
Health officials have also previously said the boys would get a mental health evaluation, to address any problems caused by their ordeal.
They are malnourished and weak, and doctors are anxious that they could be susceptible to germs spread by family members or other visitors, Dr. W. Ian Lipkin, a Columbia University infectious diseases expert, says.
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.
"If you didn't use the water pump in that location, you could only come out with an oxygen tank", ex-SEAL Com Chaiyananta said. Authorities are anxious about the possibility of infections picked up in the cave.
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.
At the start of the seven-minute video, posted on Facebook just a day after the last of the 13 members of the group were successfully escorted out of the cave, two divers are seen adjusting their equipment while standing chest-deep in murky water.
On Wednesday, Thailand's Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha thanked people involved in the rescue.
He said: 'The important thing is... personal space.
It is believed that the second lot of boys are in better health than the first four who were brought out first because they were deemed the "weakest".
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.
Initially, authorities thought they faced a reasonably easy task in getting the boy outs, but rescue efforts were quickly thwarted by rain and rising water levels inside the partially flooded passageways. The youngest boy, 11, appeared to be asleep under a crisp white sheet.
The commander of the navy SEAL unit that oversaw the rescue, Rear Admiral Apakorn Yuukongkaew, hailed the global effort.
