The eleven Thai soccer players and their coach who were trapped in a flooded Thai cave for more than two weeks have been discharged from the hospital.
However, they remain in the building ahead of a press conference when they will be quizzed by journalists for their first time about their ordeal. The questioning will be tightly monitored with all queries screened by psychologists beforehand to avoid causing the boys additional trauma.
‘The reason to hold this evening press conference is so media can ask them questions and after that they can go back to live their normal lives without media bothering them,’ chief government spokesman Sunsern Kaewkumnerd said.
Called ‘Sending the Wild Boars Home’ and broadcast on major television channels, the session will last for about 45 minutes, Sunsern said, adding that it would be conducted in an informal style with a moderator.
