MAE SAI, Thailand — The Thai hospital where the 12 boys and their soccer coach are recuperating after being rescued from a flooded cave has released video showing them in their hospital beds, chatting with nurses and making two-finger victory signs.

The video shows the boys in an isolation ward in beds with crisp white sheets and wearing green surgical masks.

Some of their parents are seen crying and waving to them from behind glass.

Chaiwetch Thanapaisal, director of Chiang Rai Prachanukroh Hospital, told a news conference involving officials involved in the rescue that “everyone is strong in mind and heart.” /ee
