Since June 23, the Thai government has been doing everything in its power to help rescue a team of 12 football players and its coach who have been trapped in an underground cave, and now it has come to light that magnate Elon Musk is offering his help in the rescue.

Musk made the announcement on his personal Twitter account stating he could send engineers from both his The Boring Company and Space X teams to aid in the effort. Throughout the Twitter tread, Musk offered up advice on how his companies can help rescue the team by offering Boring Company’s “advanced ground penetrating radar” and suggesting he could “dropshop fully charged Powerpacks and pumps.” Musk also went on to suggest inserting a 1m diameter nylon tube “through the cave network” in an attempt to “inflate with air like a bouncy castle.”

The Thai government confirmed in a statement posted to Facebook that Musk’s team will arrive on Saturday. The boys and their coach were found by two British cave divers late on Monday, and according recent reports, a former Thai Navy diver just passed away while attempting a rescue mission when he ran out of oxygen after delivering supplies to the stranded boys.
