The coach, who, along with 12 school football players, was found in a partially flooded cave in the north of Thailand, wrote a letter addressed to the parents of the children, and passed it on with the divers. He thanked them for their moral support and asked for forgiveness.

On June 23, employees of the National Park discovered a bike and bicycles near the entrance to the cave. They found out that things belong to 12 schoolchildren between the ages of 11 and 16 and their 25-year-old coach. The search operation lasted nine days, and as a result, the survivors were found alive in a half-submerged cave, where they can not get out, since none of them has been trained for a long dive.

They were given food and medicine, conducted an air chute and began training in diving. However, the situation is complicated by the fact that the cave can be flooded at any time, and the route is difficult even for professionals. On July 6, a former member of the Thai Marine Seam detachment who participated in the rescue operation was killed .

Elon Musk, who promised to send SpaceX engineers and The Boring Company to Thailand , offered his help in solving the problem .
