Elon Musk brings mini-sub to cave

Thailand Ministry of Public Health

Asked at a news conference in Bangkok if the boys had been sedated, Prayuth said: "Who would chloroform them?" They were missing for nine days before being discovered by British divers last week.

Two days before the first four boys were rescued, officials warned that oxygen levels with in the cave had fallen to 15%.

They wore face masks and were tied to buddy divers who carried their oxygen tanks, guiding them through more than two kilometres of narrow, dark corridors using torches and guide ropes.

A crack team of foreign divers and Thai Navy SEALS has been guiding the boys out through almost 4 km (2.5 miles) of sometimes submerged, pitch-dark channels. Rescue crews are anxious about the amount of air the trapped children are using, which is being drained rapidly.

National Cave Rescue Mission coordinator Anmar Mirza yesterday told CBS News it would be hard to recreate the story as a movie.

But while Narongsak Osatanakorn, the head of the joint command centre co-ordinating the operation, acknowledged Musk's offer he said that the mini submarine would not have been practical for the cave rescue.

Prayuth said the Tham Luang cave would be closed for some time to make it safe for visitors.

Two of the boys had suspected lung infections but the four boys from the first group rescued were all walking around their hospital beds.

Donald Trump urged to avoid controversial Supreme Court pick
On Sunday there was no indication that he had yet made his decision, as speculation continued to swirl around the appointment. Democrats and pro-abortion groups stepped up their rhetoric on Sunday over the danger of Trump's second pick.

SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk flew to Thailand this week to help rescue 13 people trapped inside a cave - and he brought along his latest invention to assist in the recovery effort.

Families of the first four have been able to see their children through a glass window, Chokedamrongsook said.

A statement read: "We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what". They will likely be kept in the hospital for a week to undergo tests, officials said on Tuesday.

Another four were rescued on Monday and the last four boys and the coach were brought out on Tuesday, prompting rounds of spontaneous applause as ambulances and helicopters passed.

The rescued boys are being quarantined in case any of them contracted infections while inside the cave. "Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected".

"I'd like to send out shirts to them! We would love to welcome the team from Wild Boars Football Club and their rescuers to Old Trafford this coming season". Musk had proposed possible technological solutions for extracting the boys while they were trapped and travelled to Thailand this week.
