Elon Musk announced on Twitter today that he is sending his engineers from SpaceX and BoringCo. will be assisting the rescue efforts of the 12 members of a Thai soccer team and their coach from a flooded cave that has kept them underground for about two weeks.

With BoringCo’s mission of futuristic transport systems and SpaceX being devoted to the future goals of space exploration, Musk stated “The rescue effort can use these companies’ battery packs, air pumps and tubes, Musk said, and speculated that a nylon tube could be inserted into the cave and then inflated with air, “like a bouncy castle.”

According to CNN, the Thai Government released an official statement stating “Elon Musk will send his team to Thailand tomorrow (7th July) to help in cave rescue. He may provide services for location tracking, water pumping or battery power.”
