The California tunnel company run by Elon Musk is continuing to maintain a presence at the Thai cave where several boys and their soccer coach are awaiting rescue.

The 12 boys trapped in a cave in Thailand may have no choice but to make the dangerous dive that's already claimed the life of a former navy seal.

Sam Teller, spokesman for Boring Co., said today that the company has four engineers who are "offering support in any way the government deems useful."

Musk tweeted early yesterday that he was working with a team from his Space X rocket company to build a "tiny kid-size submarine" to transport the children.

Rescuers extracted four of the 12 children from the cave where they had been trapped for more than two weeks.

But Saturday night, he tweeted that the cave was now closed for the rescue by divers.

"Will continue testing in LA in case needed later or somewhere else in the future," he wrote.

Musk says the sub would be light enough to be carried by two divers and small enough to get through narrow cave gaps.
