British diver who helped save Thai cave boys threatens to SUE Elon Musk after he labelled him a ‘pedo’ in Twitter rant because he dismissed the US billionaire’s mini-submarine rescue ‘stunt’

  • Tesla CEO Elon Musk attacked diver Vernon Unsworth over Thai cave rescue
  • Mr Unsworth accused Musk of staging a ‘PR stunt’ by building a submarine …

Musk hit out at Mr Unsworth after the British diver accused him of staging a 'PR stunt' by building a mini submarine to help rescue the trapped Thai soccer team from a flooded cave

Musk labelled the British diver 'pedo guy' in a tweet and when challenged on the remark added 'bet ya a signed dollar it's true' before deleting both messages

Musk took aim at Osottanakorn in a barbed tweet on Tuesday afternoon in which he downplayed his role in the rescue and suggested a man named Dick Stanton was the expert

The billionaire then shared what he claimed was a transcript of his emails with Stanton in which the diver encourages him to build the sub, saying 'it may well be used'

Musk also shared images of the camp which has been established around the cave mouth

The tech billionaire also tweeted images from inside the cave as rescuers attempted to save the final four boys and their 25-year-old coach who is still trapped

Musk was pictured meeting with Thai rescuers despite his offer of help being turned down

Governor  Narongsak Osottanakorn, who oversaw the rescue mission, dismissed the submarine as 'not practical for the mission'

Writing on the social media site, he said: 'Ironically, the “billionaire” label, when used by media, is almost always meant to devalue & denigrate the subject'

Elon Musk said his Boring Co, which digs tunnels for advanced transport systems, could feed a nylon tube into the submerged sections of the cave before inflating it 'like a bouncy castle' to create an underwater tunnel.
