Tech titan Elon Musk is sending engineers from two of his companies to help the Thai government rescue 12 boys and their soccer coach who’ve been trapped in a cave for nearly two weeks.

SpaceX & Boring Co engineers headed to Thailand tomorrow to see if we can be helpful to govt,” Musk, CEO of both companies, tweeted Thursday. “There are probably many complexities that are hard to appreciate without being there in person.”

Musk said that Boring Company radar technology and Tesla “Powerpacks” could help in the rescue operation.

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. If so, could dropship fully charged Powerpacks and pumps.
