♪ ♪

How the hell does a kid end up
getting stuck in a grain silo

50 feet above the ground?

It's called walking the grain.

People go up into the silo
and they stomp around

on the corn
'cause it's a cheap way

to dislodge it from the drain.

Sounds like you've run a few
of these, Judd.

Yeah, we lose a few people
a year to them down here.

JUDD: You get that much
grain together,

it's like quicksand.

So if he's already up
to his chest,

how long do we have
to get him out?

Ten minutes at the most,

but that depends
on the air pocket,

but you also can't
pull him out too fast

or you'll just rip him in half.

But i-it's corn.

Yeah, it's corn.

It weighs 1,200 pounds
per cubic yard.

It's like having
four refrigerators

on top of every part
of your body.

OWEN: All right,
here's the deal.

When we get there,

Judd's gonna run the call,
all right?

OWEN: You do what he says
when he says it.

-Copy that.
-TK: Copy that.

Copy that.

JUDD: All right,
listen up, y'all!

This is what we're gonna do!

You get in there,
you put your platform down.

You stay put!

One false step could cause

the corn!

You got a lot of pressure
on your chest right now. You've gotta try to relax.

It's gonna be okay.

Tighten that right now.

JUDD: All right,
got another coming in.

Putting it behind you.

Check your elbows, kid.

JUDD: We're gonna get these
around you to form a seal

and then suck out the corn
to relieve the pressure.

You gotta go around.
You good?

There you go.
Oh, you got him.

We're losing him.

Come on, we gotta go.

All right, hey,
we're gonna drop this in.

We're gonna vacuum
this out around you.

You better watch your arms.
Just keep your head up.Just relax if you can.

-JUDD: All right, breathing?
-PAUL: Okay.


TK, you're up.

Just make sure that
you don't let him fall.

I got it.
I got it.

Let's go.
Come on.

JUDD: Okay, Derek,

he's gonna start

Gonna get you out of here.

My deal is that you disobeyed
a direct order

back there at the silo.

A direct order?
You're not my boss.

You're damn right I was
the second the Cap

put me in charge of that team.

I was just following
my instincts.

Your instincts?

Based on all of your, uh,

silo rescue experience
at Times Square?

I'm not doing this with you,
all right?

Well, that must be nice
that you get to move

right to the front of the line

You don't know
the first thing about me, dude.

No, man, you must have been
killing it in New York City

that you got
to follow Daddy down here

at the drop of a hat.

Seriously, Judd,
back off.

Or what, pretty boy?

Are you gonna go
and tell your daddy?

You gonna say,
"Judd's hurting my feelings?"

Nobody in New York

a blue pickup truck

but who might know who did.

Dustin Shepard.

I'm sorry, officer.

Are you suggesting that
I violate a restraining order?

Like you need
any encouragement.

I'm just saying next time

you do violate
the restraining order--

which you will--

maybe be a little more polite
and you might get

a few questions answered
before you get arrested.

Not to that scumbag.

Well, if that scumbag
is innocent,

he might have information
that can help.

If--if he's innocent,

and I've been harassing him
for all these years,

I am the last person
that he's gonna speak to.

God, what if I'm wrong?

You know what?

He was a dick to her

the whole time
they were together,

and just because he doesn't own
a blue truck

doesn't mean
he wasn't involved.
