Musk has expressed his desire to help with rescue efforts on social media, and orchestrated the creation of a "kid-size submarine."

Experts have previously said Musk's plans may not be of much use due to huge numbers of rescuers already working on the mission and their success in so far bringing eight out of the 12 boys to safety.

In another post around 5:30 a.m., this time on Instagram, several people are seen wading through the waters of the cave with headlights guided by rope.
