Thailand Cave Rescue: 8 Team Members Out, 5 to Go - Four of the soccer team players who've been trapped inside a cave in northern Thailand since June 23 were brought out safely on Sunday, with another four successfully rescued on Monday. BBC reports that a team of 90 expert divers--40 from Thailand and 50 from overseas--are working together to guide the boys through darkness and submerged passageways for 2.5 miles to the entrance. According to Thai authorities, the boys are in "good health, while five more team members--including the coach--still require rescue. Efforts were expected to resume early Monday after the air tanks are replaced. Officials say rescuers have a three- to four-day window to carry out their operation due to heavy rainfall and more forecast for the coming days.
In additional uplifting news, it seems Elon Musk has been also trying to find a way to help the rescue efforts. His crew has been testing an underwater pod of sorts to transport the boys out of the cave.
#ElonMusk comes to the rescue of the #ThaiSoccerTeam trapped in the cave since about two weeks now. His company will build kid sized submarines within 8 hours and send them to #Thailand. These submarines will be small and light enough for two professional divers to carry out of the cave. Hoping to recover the boys very soon! ✨✨ #Paperazzi #Lifestyle #News
