Thai Prime Minister General Bright Chan-O Cha said Tuesday that members of the football team who were rescued from a cave in Thailand received anti-anxiety medication before being taken out.
There was speculation that the boys could be quiet during their treacherous journeys from the cave. Since none of them had any diving experience and most of them could not swim, officials feared they might be appalled.
Speaking after the weekly cabinet meeting in Bangkok, the prime minister denied that young football players were calm before they were rescued, but said they had given an anxiety-relieving substance to ease anxiety.
‘Who will create chloroform? If chloroformed, how can they come out? This is called a dexterity to make them excited, not stress,’ the prime minister said.

Thai media reported that the parents of some soccer players who were rescued from a cave in Thailand were able to visit their children in hospital.
Thai media said four of the children were allowed into their rooms, although they were required to wear face masks and stand six meters away from the boys. Other children’s parents were able to see their children through a glass window. All children were quarantined because of the risk of infection.
Thai public health officials said the first four rescued children were able to stand and walk around their family on Tuesday. Officials said at least two of them could have pneumonia, but no one had fever
The boys pulled out of the cave on Tuesday, and their coach is still unclear, but officials said the eight previously rescued were relatively healthy and in a hospital in Chiang Rai.
Only a doctor and three Thai sailors who helped in the rescue effort need to leave safely before the operation is over.
