Thailand officials have released the first images of the 12 boys rescued from the Tham-luang cave in Thailand. The footage shows the boys in hospital gowns, smiling and waving to cameras and family members. One boy can be seen giving a victory sign. More details of how the miraculous rescue was carried out are coming out including that the boys were sedated ahead of the rescue to prevent them panicking in the dark, narrow, underwater passageways.
