Some construction workers went into a diving bell. They had airlines and supply lines but they had to go into the hole in the pillar. They guided the pipe in. They used robots to pump the concrete in.
After the pillar was repaired, the diving bell was stuck inside the pillar. The concrete hardened. The diving bell could not get out. The two construction workers had air lines and water lines and food lines to get supplies but they were trapped.
They were trapped in the foundation of the pillar. They were entombed. They were buried alive.
