Following daring cave rescue, Wild Boars team tackle fame, expectations


Chiang Rai,jul 13:
After their traumatic ordeal deep inside a dark and flooded mountain cave, Thailand’s 12 rescued boys and their young soccer coach will now have to navigate a fresh challenge: Fame.The boys, aged 11 to 16, will spend at least a week in the hospital and a month at home, health officials said, following a daring rescue from the Tham Luang cave complex in the northern province of Chiang Rai that captivated the world.The head of the Thai navy SEAL diving team involved in their rescue urged the boys to make the most of their lives and “be a force for good”.
Global attention on their fate and the multinational rescue has put the area firmly on the map, with plans for a museum to showcase the rescue.
Despite the heightened interest and pressure, the boys need to live as normally as possible, said Dr Andrea Danese of the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College in London.
“The boys need to go back to their normal life, to their daily routines, in order to fully appreciate that the threat is over,” said Danese, who heads the institute’s stress and development laboratory.
