     Having developed gas, Crabnee Stalpinoster rose to the surface and was drowning in the open air, his bodily tissues rupturing as expanded gasses tore his cells apart, but rescuers in the experimental vessel, Grostilok, tossed him a rock that dragged him back down to the depths where he was rushed to hospital and treated along with his rescuers. All are expected to make a full recovery.
