Following this. Too bad one person had to die already. Is USA helping? It seems weird that no country has any equipment to get them out

Read an article today that said some sections of the escape route in the cave require rock climbing gear to scale. I gotta say, these little dudes are freakin' bad asses! Two weeks in a cave, learn to swim, learn to dive, learn to rock climb. WTF?! Amazing young boys.

Been following as well and getting a lot of media coverage for some reasons.

Anyway, Elon just made a press saying they are sending their equipment to there and posted a video. I am sick of this guy and his company. He could have just sent the equipment and said nothing if he is really trying to help.

Not only that, but they are doing all of this after an ordeal in which they've had less than usual food, water, sleep, etc.

Probably some future Thai SEALs in that bunch.

This. Donít like how he is using this event for publicity. Sad part is someone in Hollywood will probably make a movie about this and make millions. While the people involved in this event, the kids, coaches and rescuer wonít benefit from it.

Unless Clint Eastwood makes it, and uses the actual kids (like the train movie).

I get it, the dude is an attention whore... however; I cannot hate on him for trying to help. He offered an option which is more than just about anyone else did.
