A thirty-foot baby worm is being lowered into a stone chamber. The chamber is then covered with a wire top. Valves are turned and water rushes into the chamber. The worm begins to writhe violently and SMOKE pours from it. The worm dissolves partially and suddenly, before it dies, it secretes a dark blue bile out its mouth. It spasms and dies.
