"I want to hug him. and I want to tell him that I'm happy", he said. And helped him to have a new life, it's like a rebirth.
Thai doctors said the boys each lost about 2 kilograms, or roughly 4.5 pounds, from the ordeal.
"Thank you very much for taking care of our children". Their discovery immediately prompted discussions on how to get them out, with initial reports suggesting that the safest way to rescue the team was to wait out the rainy season, which lasts until October, and guide them out once the flooded tunnels had dried.
The parents of the first four boys to be rescued were allowed to pay bedside visits to their quarantined children on the condition they wear hazmat suits and keep a distance of two meters. They will soon be able to meet them in person, but only while wearing protective clothing to reduce the risk of infection.

Wetsuits and scuba gear still hung along a walkway at the entrance Wednesday, waiting to be sorted by Thai Navy officials. Among them was Australian doctor Richard Harris.
They were all brought safely following a mission fraught with obstacles that ended late on Tuesday.
Asking to speak with Dr Harris, Mr Turnbull said "we know it's a tough time for you at the moment, so lots of love there". "I think there is a worldwide appeal which I think will inspire millions across the globe".
