"He may provide services for location tracking, water pumping or battery power", the government said in a statement.

However, the dive is complex - with one Navy SEAL dying during the rescue efforts - and numerous boys do not know how to swim.

The kind of tiny submarine Musk is describing could allow professional divers to bring the boys out without requiring the boys to do anything more than lay still.

A rescue team has been assembled from around the world to rescue the team, which became trapped by floodwater while exploring the Tham Luang cave network in northern Thailand.

The boys, aged 11 to 16, have practiced breathing in scuba masks but they have not been fully trained to handle the daunting cave system.

He said that 13 foreign and five Thai divers were taking part in the rescue and that two divers would accompany each boy as they're gradually extracted.

They've been trapped there since June 23.

Musk said more engineers are on the way.

The group was trapped by flooding after entering the complex looking for shelter from heavy rains, sparking a huge search and rescue operation led by the Thai military.

With time being of the essence for 12 boys and their coach, who have been trapped inside a Thai cave for over two weeks, the U.S. tech visionary has come forward with some ideas of his own.

There was no immediate comment about the plan from Thai officials.

On Friday, a former Thai navy diver lost consciousness and died while placing oxygen canisters on a route within the cave being used in the rescue effort.

Rescue teams have been making preparations to save the boys, with the leader of the rescue effort saying the best window for a rescue could come in the next three or four days.

He also says the families of the boys have been informed about the risky mission.

An air line has been installed to the cave where the group has been trapped for almost two weeks in a chamber in the Tham Luang cave complex.

Reuters is reporting that at least two boys are out of the cave.

The rescue mission has proven to be exceedingly complex, numerous passageways leading into the cave are narrow, and most of the boys do not know how to swim.
