    "Water level was actually very low. You could literally have swum to Cave 5 with no gear, which is obv how the kids got in."

    He ran out of air. My guess is, as a retired Seal, he was out of practice diving, and got overly involved whit his task, and didn't monitor his SPG.

    This was in the BBC news story:

    A death in the cave
    The death of Saman - a highly trained diver - on Thursday underscored the danger of moving from the chamber to mouth of the cave, and raised serious doubts about the safety of bringing the boys out through the cramped, flooded passageways.

    The diver died after losing consciousness in one of the passageways, said Passakorn Boonyaluck, deputy governor of the Chiang Rai region, where the cave is situated.

    "His job was to deliver oxygen. He did not have enough on his way back," Mr Passakorn said.

    He said that Saman's dive partner tried to revive him but could not, and his body was brought out of the cave.

    It just shows he wasn't getting the big picture. Sure the water was low, as far as they could take him. The cave went down, then up several times before the place where the boys were found.

    Instead of running his mouth, Mr. Musk should be donating money to the British Cave Rescue group.
