Thai officials have shown the first videos documenting the recovery of the boys who this week made a dramatic escape from a flooded cave complex in northern Thailand.

In a series of videos shown at a press conference on Wednesday evening, members of the Wild Boar soccer team can be seen wearing face masks and hospital gowns in separate beds in a sterilized ward at a hospital in Chiang Rai.

The boys were waving and pressing their palms together in a prayer-like fashion, which is a Thai greeting.

Watch the video below:

In a separate clip, family members can also be seen waving to the boys through a glass window. Some of them can be seen crying as they see the children.

The last members of the team were pulled out of the Tham Luang cave network Tuesday evening after a three-day mission to extract them.
