Cave Diver Tells Elon Musk To "Stick His Submarine Where It Hurts"

Elon Musk went on a weird rant against a British diver involved in last week's Thai cave rescue after the diver mocked the billionaire tech entrepreneur's proposed plan to help with the mission.

"He can stick his submarine where it hurts", said Unsworth, who had a "pivotal" role in the rescue by helping authorities pinpoint the boys' location, according to CNN.

"It had absolutely no chance of working. It wouldn't have made the first fifty meters into the cave".

"Just a P.R. stunt". Musk responded by saying the Thai official was "not the subject matter expert".

Musk, responding to further criticism from professor and New York Times columnist Zeynep Tufekci, wrote this morning that he "Never saw this British expat guy who lives in Thailand (sus) at any point when we were in the caves".

"Water level was actually very low & still (not flowing) - you could literally have swum to Cave 5 with no gear, which is obv how the kids got in".

He was involved in the rescue for the whole 17 days.

Unsworth was part of an global team of cave-diving experts who rescued the group of 12 teenage boys and their coach last week.

The Tesla CEO had traveled to Thailand earlier this week, touting his "mini-sub" that he said was built with rocket parts and could be carried by two divers.

Musk even tweeted out a screenshot of what he said was his email exchange with Richard Stanton, a British diver who helped lead the rescue operation. Vern Unsworth, a British rescue worker and cave diver who was "instrumental" in locating the boys before transferring the mission to more specialized rescue operatives, criticized the billionaire for his promotion of a submarine that Musk claimed could assist in the rescue.
