Elon Musk offers to help Thailand's government with cave rescue

Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and tunnel-digging firm The Boring Company, says he is "happy to help" Thai authorities attempting to rescue the junior soccer team trapped inside the flooded Tham Luang cave system.

Yesterday the target was an area known as chamber three - still at least two kilometres from the ledge where the boys are sheltering.

James Yenbamroong, founder and chief executive of Thai satellite communications business Mu Space Corp, said that SpaceX, Mr Musk's aerospace and transportation business, had "reached out to us today to help connect to Thai govt". There are probably many complexities that are hard to appreciate without being there in person'.

The medical assessment means that it is too unsafe to try to move the youngsters, an unnamed source in the Thai Navy Seals told CNN. Most of the boys can not swim.

Rescue crews have also been working to drain the water so the boys would not be as reliant on scuba diving to get to safety, but heavy rain expected Saturday could complicate the matter.

"Don't know if pump rate is limited by electric power or pumps are too small".

He added that it could supply "fully charged Powerpacks and pumps" to aid authorities.

Cave rescue experts have said the safest course of action might be to wait for Thailand's monsoon season to end, but that could take months and oxygen levels in the cave continue to dwindle.

He suggested inserting a one metre diameter nylon tube through the cave network and inflating it. "He may provide services for location tracking, water pumping or battery power", the government said in a statement.
