Violent Alarm

A bank employee locks herself in an air-tight vault and pulls the fire alarm to alert the authorities, failing to realize that doing so also activates a burst of fire-suppressing carbon dioxide, which killed her.

- IT WAS THE END OF ANOTHER DAY

AT LIEKOWSKI SAVINGS AND LOAN.

ASSISTANT MANAGER SARAHHAD VOLUNTEERED TO STAY LATE

AND CLOSE UP SHOP.

THE SECURITY GUARD NORMWAS A FIVE-LETTER WORD AWAY

FROM LOCKING UP.

BUT THEN...

ONE MORE CUSTOMER CAME IN...

- [grunt]

- TO MAKE...A WITHDRAW.

- DON'T MOVE!

- BANK ROBBERIES HAVE BEENAVERAGING BETWEEN

6,000 AND 7,000 PER YEARIN THE UNITED STATES,

WHICH WOULD FIGURE OUT TO ANAVERAGE OF 15 OR 20 A DAY.

THIS IS ATTRIBUTABLE TOTHE SIMPLE FACT

THAT WE HAVE MORE BANKS.

THERE ARE JUST MOREOPPORTUNITIES.

- OPEN IT.

- AS BANK ROBBERIES GO,THIS ONE WAS EASY.

MAYBE A LITTLE TOO EASY.

THAT'S BECAUSEIT WAS INSIDE JOB.

BETWEEN BEST FRIENDS SARAHAND TRACY.

THEY HATCHED A PLAN THATWOULD PUT THEM ON EASY STREET

FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES.

- STICK TO THE PLAN.- YOU GOT IT.

- SARAH GETS LOCKEDINSIDE THE VAULT.

ON HER WAY OUT,TRACY TRIGGERS THE FIRE ALARM.

INNOCENT SARAH GETS RESCUEDAND THEY GET THE DOUGH.

SO FAR, SO GOOD.

BUT...THERE'S ALWAYS SOMETHINGTHAT GOES WRONG.

SARAH DIDN'T REALIZE THE VAULTWAS EQUIPPED

WITH A FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEMTHAT USED CARBON DIOXIDE.

THIS WOULD QUICKLY SUFFOCATEANY FIRES.

AND SARAH.

- THERE ARE DIFFERENT KINDSOF FIRE EXTINGUISHERS.

MOST OF THEM USE CO2,OR CARBON DIOXIDE.

AND YOU NEED TO BE CAREFULBECAUSE IN A CLOSED ENVIRONMENT,

THE BUILD-UP OR CONCENTRATIONOF CO2 OVER 17% CONCENTRATION

IS NOT ONLY PUTTING OUT THE FIREBUT CAN PUT OUT YOUR LIFE.
