A former navy diver named Saman Kunan has died during an attempted rescue to help the people that are trapped in the Tham Luang cave in northern Thailand.
Oxygen levels are decreasing because of the number of workers inside the cave and they were trying to run an oxygen line into the chambers in addition to the oxygen canisters used by divers.
"They may have some belief that their techniques are effective for groundwater drainage, but anything that is not in the plan must be discussed with us first", Narongsak told Thai media. "And now we are working against water".

The muddy bank where the boys are stranded is some four kilometres from the front entrance of the cave, with sections of the final 1.7-kilometre stretch completely underwater.
They ventured in while the cave was dry but were caught out by a sudden deluge of rain, which flooded the system.
"The boys are not suitable.(they) can not dive at this time", Narongsak Osottanakorn, who is leading the operation, told reporters just after midnight in English.
"They've learnt to breath and dive", he said, but then changed tact and said the boys were "not ready" to dive.
The teams searching for another route through a natural chimney were dispatched following reports that the boys had told divers they heard dogs barking, a rooster crowing and children playing, possibly indicating a shaft leading up to the surface. "We can't risk having the flood back into the cave".
They are hoping that an upgraded draining effort can lower the water level in an area where it is still at the ceiling or just about.

Rescuers carry supplies into the Tham Luang cave complex, where 12 boys and their soccer coach are trapped, in the northern province of Chiang Rai, Thailand, July 5, 2018.
At this time though, the only way for the boys to get out of the cave is by diving, something cave rescue experts warn is extremely unsafe even for those with experience.
They have practised wearing diving masks and breathing in preparation for the diving possibility. Three of the boys are too small for the wetsuits on hand.
Rescuers dedicated to freeing 12 Thai boys and their football coach from a cave face a daunting decision this weekend over whether to rush the extraction by diving them out before heavy monsoon rains next week or to leave them in place for now.
Authorities are still exploring other options, including scouring the mountainside for other ways into the cave and finding faster ways to pump out the water.
The Thai government said Musk's team could help the rescue operation with location tracking, water pumping or battery power.
That could take months, however, given that Thailand's rainy season typically lasts until October.
Navy SEAL commander Rear Adm. Arpakorn Yookongkaew separately explained the ethic driving the SEALs' mission and why Saman's death would not deter them from their course.
The rescue effort has grown into an worldwide collaboration, with divers from the USA military, the U.K., China and Australia helping out.
