This is Elon Musk’s submarine that will rescue Thai soccer team

According to our correspondent, Thai officials have warned the rescue could take three or four days in the worst case scenario.

"I confirm that we are at war with water and time from the first day up to today", he said Saturday.

Two divers are helping each of the boys out as families wait nervously outside the cave entrance - 2.5 miles (4km) from where they were trapped.

The acting Chiang Rai governor has told reporters "today is D-Day" with 13 foreigner and five Thai divers taking part in the rescue.

His news of creating an escape pod came after USA and Thai officials got four boys out of the flooded cave network after spending 15 days trapped along with their soccer coach.

They were equipped with spare air tanks, regulators, masks and wetsuits, and were prepared to lead the boys to comfortable above-water space if needed, he said, adding that it wasn't necessary.

The head of the rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakorn, said last week they would bring the fittest people in the group out first.

When they come out of the cave, Heidler said, they will go straight into a waiting ambulance.

Rescuers have been unable to extend a hose pumping oxygen all the way to where the boys are, but have brought them some oxygen tanks.

The first two boys - described as the weakest of the group - emerged from the Tham Luang cave complex and were immediately transported by ambulance to Chiang Rai Prachanukroh Hospital one hour away.

Aged between 11 and 17, they belong to a football club called the Wild Boars, and became trapped during an excursion with their coach. The rain raises concerns that rising floodwaters in the cave complex will complicate rescue efforts and affect the evacuation.

The entire nation is glued to the media coverage of the rescue mission, and Thai authorities have insisted they will not compromise on the safety of the trapped group.

Reporting from Chiang Rai, Al Jazeera's Scott Heidler said it had started raining again on Sunday.

"The heaviest rain has yet to come", said CNN meteorologist Allison Chinchar.

Meanwhile, the oxygen level in the cave has dropped, taxing the bodies of the captives who have had little to eat or drink while they were missing from June 23 to Monday, when they were located deep within the 10-kilometer cave system in northern Thailand.

Handwritten notes by the children trapped in a cave read, from the top: 'Please don't worry Dad and Mom, Biw has been gone for two weeks, I will help mom sell her goods every free day, I'll quickly make my way.' The message below reads: 'Please don't worry, be happy.

The hordes of global and local media have been kept back from the cave and the hospital in Chiang Rai, where the rescued boys are believed to be under observation. But as traditional and straightforward methods prove inadequate to rescue the children and their coach, Elon Musk is turning to technology to design a kid-size submarine that will help save the boys.

The death of a former Thai Navy SEAL diver who ran out of oxygen in the cave on Friday underscored the danger of the journey even for professionals. "I promise to take the very best care of the kids", he wrote. "They'll be heroes." "That's intimidating as well as somewhat uplifting, but it won't be addressing the fears and the hard emotions that the boys have gone through".
