Divers practiced their rescue techniques in a swimming pool with local children about the same height and weight as the members of the Wild Boars soccer team trapped in the cave. The boys are expected to be released within seven days barring complications.
The 12 Wild Boars players and their coach had entered the cave to go exploring June 23 but monsoon rains filled the tight passageways, blocking their escape.
Derek Anderson, 32, a rescue specialist with the U.S. Air Force based in Okinawa, Japan, told the Mail that crews ensured the boys were "tightly packed" so divers could maintain control and adjust their air supply as needed.
Teacher Kru Nice says 14-year-old Adun Sam-On has always been a leader, despite the fact he doesn't have his parents with him or even an official home.
"I was afraid that he might think I was going to blame him, so I sent a letter of comfort to him in hospital", said the abbot.
"I want this warm hug once again", his widow Valeepoan said on Instagram, posting a photo of her and Saman embracing.

Two days after 12 boys and their soccer coach disappeared inside a cave complex in Thailand's mountainous north, a team of Thai Royal Navy SEALs headed before sunrise into the pitch-black maze of muddy passages to find them.
"I knew that we had a good team, with good support from the Thai authorities, the caving community and rescue organisations, so we had the best we could do to make a plan work".
Expert divers from the Thai Navy SEALs, experienced in conventional diving situations, were faced with an unprecedented challenge.
Wet and cold, some of the boys fell asleep as they were hauled along to the exit, but there were more than 100 people stationed along this section, including nurses who checked their temperature, blood pressure, pulse and oxygen levels.
Officials said the plight of the stranded boys and the heroic and successful multi-national efforts to free them has put the relatively unexplored cave squarely on the map. "What we do is very calculating, very calm. But they were very cold".
Mr Stanton admitted that made the task more hard.

Huge protests are planned in the UK's capital city during Trump's visit when he arrives with first lady Melania Trump on Thursday. A brief visit to the newly-relocated US Embassy at Nine Elms in south-west London is also believed to be on the cards.
Grainy footage of the moment Stanton and John Volanthen discovered the dishevelled and emaciated group has become the symbol of a remarkable survival story - that has already piqued the interest of Hollywood film producers.
Water pumps failed hours after the last boy was saved, sending rescue workers scrambling out for safety.
The hope that the boys will stay out of the spotlight for some time was one shared by former mine foreman Luis Urzua, who was trapped in a mine in Chile for 69 days following a collapse.
