Relatives were seen waving to them from the other side of a glass barrier.

The boys were rescued one-by-one in a complex operation involving international teams that began Sunday and finally ended Tuesday. All the children survived, but a Thai Navy SEAL, Petty Officer Saman Kunan, died during the rescue.

Meanwhile, two of the American servicemen involved in retrieving the young soccer players revealed the race against time as cold water, depleting oxygen levels and little visibility made the mission extremely dangerous.

"We knew if we didn't act when we acted, there was not going to be a successful rescue," Air Force Maj. Charles Hodges told NBC's "Today" on Wednesday.

Master Sgt. Derek Anderson, who was inside the cave during the rescue, added: "We can all be proud."

The boys vanished June 23 with their 25-year-old coach after seasonal rains flooded the caverns and narrow passages, blocking their exit from the popular tourist destination.

Nine days later, two expert cave divers found the trapped group. As they awaited rescue, they were given energy gels and baby food to help their bodies slowly adjust to solids.

Jetsada Chokdumrongsuk, a public health official, said Tuesday that the boys had been given antibiotics, rabies vaccines and vitamin B2, and showed no signs of fever or vision problems.

There was global jubilation at news of the rescue. World leaders, including President Donald Trump, tweeted their good wishes, and the Manchester United football team invited the boys to their stadium.

Nat Sumon reported from Chiang Rai, Thailand, and Alastair Jamieson from London.
