As the Inquisitr previously reported, Musk offered the services of his engineers at Space X and The Boring Company to the Thai government so that they could use their years of expertise to help get the boys and their coach to safety.
"Six of them came out", a defence ministry official, who asked not to be named, told AFP.
Authorities undertook the risky mission to rescue 12 Thai schoolboys and their soccer coach trapped inside a flooded cave on Sunday and authorities said the entire task may take three-four days to complete.
"Today is the D-day".
The first stage of the mission ran "smoothly" and the rescued boys were in "good health", according to the Thai authorities.
The boys, aged between 11 and 16, went missing with their 25-year-old coach after soccer practice on June 23, setting out on an adventure to explore the cave complex, reportedly for a picnic to celebrate one of their birthdays, before being trapped by rising waters from bursts of monsoon rain.
Four boys were brought safely out of the cave on Sunday.
The chief of the rescue mission, Narongsak Osottanakorn, earlier told a news conference a team had gone into the cave to rescue the remaining boys at 11 a.m. (0400 GMT), and he expected good news soon.
Those who are the weakest must be helped from the caves first say doctors, as ambulances wait on standby by the caves entrance.
"If you're claustrophobic to begin with, and then add to it that the cave is water-filled and dark and you're going to get twisted around and maybe upside down. that's a really scary situation", said Greg Brick, a geologist in the Twin Cities who also works for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources as a hydrologist. It could take two to four days complete the mission, officials said.

They were discovered by British divers on Monday night after a nine-day round-the-clock search.
The boys, members of the Wild Boars soccer team, were invited to the World Cup Final in Moscow if they make it out in time and can physically handle the trip. The latter option is extremely risky, and the arduous trip caused the death of a former Thai Navy SEAL as he lost consciousness underwater while placing extra air tanks inside the cave to allow other rescuers to reach the group.
But Mr Narongsak said earlier that recent mild weather and falling water levels had created optimal conditions for an underwater evacuation. "Otherwise we will lose the opportunity".
However, after news of the rescue of four boys emerged, Musk tweeted, "Hopefully useful".
He told reporters the four rescued boys were taken to the hospital in the town of Chiang Rai, the provincial capital, for evaluation, and the next phase of the operation would resume after about 10-20 hours. Numerous boys do not know how to swim.
They were stranded by flash floods that caused water levels to rise, making it hard to get out.
More than 100 exploratory holes were also bored - some shallow, but the longest 400 metres deep - into the mountainside in an attempt to open a second evacuation route and avoid forcing the boys into the risky dive.
The four have not yet been able to see their parents, nor their friends, as they undergo medical examination.
One of the boys, identified as Tun, wrote: "Mom and Dad, please don't worry, I am fine. You don't need to be anxious about me".
