Elon Musk is in the Thai cave where children are being rescued

Asked at a news conference in Bangkok if the boys had been sedated, Prayuth said: "Who would chloroform them?" It is rainy season in Thailand at the moment, with torrential downpours that appear out of nowhere dominating the weather patterns. Divers brought 25-year-old coach Ekkapol "Aek" Chantawong and the remaining four boys - ages 11 to 16 - to safety in a risky and highly complex operation Tuesday.

They spent nine harrowing days trapped in darkness until two British divers found them, looking gaunt but otherwise offering smiles to the divers and appearing to be in remarkably good spirits.

Forecasts of more rain also threatened to raise water levels, further educing the amount of available air and jeopardizing efforts to get the boys out.

Celebrations that the mission was completed successfully are likely to be tinged with sadness over the loss of a former Thai navy diver who died last Friday while on a re-supply mission inside the cave in support of the rescue. Rescue crews are anxious about the amount of air the trapped children are using, which is being drained rapidly.

But Musk tweeted Sunday morning that his team of SpaceX engineers didn't actually go to Thailand because rescue operations were already underway. His condition was apparently of such concern that medics didn't even wait for police cruisers to escort them to a nearby helipad, the Thai military sources said.

Musk has expressed his desire to help with rescue efforts on social media, and orchestrated the creation of what he called a "kid-size submarine".

A man like that [Geiger] should not be put in charge of a game of that magnitude. "It is not possible, this has to be denounced", he added.

But family members have seen at least some of the boys from behind a glass barrier. "We can see that everything is ok as they're eating well", he said.

The boys and their coach have now all been taken to hospital after the three-day evacuation that was a battle against heavy, predicted rain.

The rescued boys are being quarantined in case any of them contracted infections while inside the cave. "Such a attractive moment - all freed, great job!"

Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha was scheduled to make a second visit to the scene late on Monday and the president of soccer's governing body, FIFA, Gianni Infantino, today invited the boys to the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday if they make it out of the cave in time. Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected.

"We are not sure if this is a miracle, a science, or what", they wrote on Facebook, where they have been updating the public on the rescue mission to rescue the 13 members of the Wild Boar soccer team.

A nutritionist is monitoring their diet and has recommended that they eat nothing spicy or salty - despite the boys' cravings for spicy basil pork and rice, and grilled pork.
