Elon Musk has posted tvideo and photos from inside the cave in Thailand where four boys and their soccer coach remain trapped.
Business Insider contacted SpaceX and they could not confirm or deny whether Musk was actually in Thailand.
Musk has expressed his desire to help with rescue efforts on social media, and orchestrated the creation of a ‘kid-size submarine.’

Elon Musk has posted on photos and video from inside the cave in Thailand where four boys and their soccer coach remain trapped, but SpaceX won’t confirm or deny his whereabouts.

Musk posted photos on his Twitter account at around 5:00 a.m. local time Tuesday, reportedly from inside and outside of the cave.
