'Mini-sub ready if needed': Elon Musk tweets from Thai cave
10 July 2018, 11:56 | Erica Roy
Will Elon Musk’s ‘kid submarine’ be used in Thai rescue?
Chiang Rai governor and operation chief Narongsak Osottanakorn confirmed at a press conference Sunday that he had met the boys and they were in "perfect" health.
The weather in Chiang Rai, Thailand, where the boys and their coach are trapped in a cave, is "actually quite dry", saidCBS News foreign correspondent Ben Tracy. No boys would be discharged for at least seven days.
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. It was clear doctors were taking a cautious approach.
To date, each rescued boy has been escorted through the labyrinthine cave by two divers, each of them holding an oxygen tank that feeds to the survivor's mask.
Billionaire Elon Musk's "mini" submarine developed by his SpaceX team is set to arrive in Thailand around 11 p.m. local time, 12:00 p.m. ET on Monday, according to his tweet.
The boys and their coach, whose team is known as the Wild Boars, became stranded when they were exploring the cave after a practice game on June 23.
The health of the four boys and their football coach is said to be good as they ready to be guided through the narrow flooded passages of the complex.
Monday's rescue effort took about nine hours, two fewer than the day before, in a sign of growing confidence and expertise.
Two of the boys had suspected lung infections but the four boys from the first group rescued were all walking around their beds.
Police and military personnel use umbrellas to cover around a stretcher near a helicopter and an ambulance at a military airport in Chiang Rai on July 9, 2018, as rescue operations continue for those still trapped inside the cave in Khun Nam Nang Non Forest.
The condition of the boys and rescuers is unknown at this time.
People across Thailand cheered the rescue operation, including at the Mae Sai Prasitsart school where six of the trapped boys are students.
Monsoon rains have started falling again, causing water levels inside the cave to rise, squeezing the boys in an ever shrinking space inside the cave, and causing oxygen levels to drop.
The death Friday of a former Thai navy SEAL, Saman Gunan, underscored the risks. "The boys are safe and well and they are eating food and expected to make a full recovery".
As an worldwide coalition of divers continued to rescue a Thai soccer team and their coach from a cave Monday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk was trying to help in his own inimitable way.
"They are happy and miss their home. but they may have to watch the World Cup matches on TV because they are still in quarantine", Dr Jessada said. Workers were seen lining the roads around Chiang Rai airport, the closest regional airport to the site of the cave, with flags representing the Thai king. All preparations, including replacing the compressed air cylinders positioned along the route out in the cave, take at least 20 hours, he said. The safety of the divers, who have meticulously planned the mission, is also paramount.
"This is way different than anything we have ever seen before", said Barnes. "But if Phra Pirun doesn't help, then it might be a little late".
