While the family members of the boys will be allowed to visit them in hospital, no physical contact will be possible until after doctors have blood test results back from the boys.

The eight boys that have been rescued so far are weak but in good health, Kimberlee says.

Families have vowed to wait at the cave entrance until all of the boys, and their coach, have been freed from the cave, CNN reports.
