A spokesperson for Musk also said SpaceX representatives are in talks with the Thai government, according to Express UK.

He also told his followers: "I suspect that the Thai govt has this under control, but I'm happy to help if there is a way to do so". Over the years, he has also used social media to respond to global disasters.

Since June 23, a soccer team made up of 12 boys and their coach have been trapped in a cave system in Thailand. Musk theorised that it could be possible to pump air through nylon tubes to create an artificial pocket of air against the roof of the flooded tunnels.

It all started with a plea from a random Twitter user.

Musk's companies could help by trying to locate the boys' precise location using Space Exploration Technologies or Boring Company technology, pumping water or providing heavy-duty battery packs known as Tesla Powerwalls, a spokesman for the billionaire said.

Bloomberg has a full rundown of the public inquiries , at least a dozen of which were still pending when Pruitt resigned. Yet, he maintained the confidence of the president while charges of ethics violations mounted.

In addition to sending assistance, he's been brainstorming ideas for how to improve conditions in the incredibly complex cave system where the boys and their coach are trapped. Time is of the essence as concerns mount over depleting oxygen levels and pending heavy rains.

On Friday it was confirmed that a former Thai Navy diver who had volunteered to help the rescue had died, according to government officials.

It is not clear whether Musk's solution will be seriously considered or whether it would work better than the methods already being explored by rescuers.

He wrote earlier that Boring Co "has advanced ground penetrating radar & is pretty good at digging holes". Don't know if pump rate is limited by electric power or pumps are too smal. "There are probably many complexities that are hard to appreciate without being there in person", said Musk in his tweet, necessitating the trip.
