Tesla founder Elon Musk has been left bewildered following a wave of backlash for his attempt to help save the Thai soccer team and coach trapped in a cave.
All 12 boys and the coach have now been successfully rescued by dive crews following weeks trapped underground. In the midst of the rescue effort, Musk sprung into action to build a small tube submarine that could fit the boys inside and safely transport them through the waters.
Musk had sent engineers to Thailand and eventually arrived himself. He was testing the Wild Boar—the child submarine, named after the boys’ soccer team—in pools in the United States. Despite quick work, and the small submarine arriving in Thailand as four boys were still trapped, it was not used in the rescues.
