World famous entrepreneur Elon Musk shared a video of a small submarine that could be used to help rescue the boys currently trapped in a cave in Thailand.

Musk's video shows a group of men testing the metallic sub in a swimming pool. Musk shared the video on his Twitter account.

Musk offered the help of engineers from his companies to assist the Thailand government as they attempt to free a group of boys and their coach from a flooded cave.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that after an intense 10-day search, the 12 missing boys and their soccer coach have been found alive on the 3rd of July. The group got trapped in a cave system when they were caught unexpectedly by monsoon rains.

The boys - aged between 11 and 16 - and their 25-year-old coach were exploring the Tham Luang cave complex in a forest park on the 23rd of June. The tired and hungry group was found by divers about 4 km from the mouth of the flooded cave.

Despite being exhausted and in need of warm food and a warm bath, it is reported by EWN that none of the survivors are seriously injured.
