On January 2, 1903 in New York, two tunnel-working scam artists named Henry and Orson are attempting to exploit the pneumatic tubing systems of the early banks by cutting one of the tubes in a block of wood to catch the money capsules. However as more capsules back up in the line and negative pressure builds, they attempt to pull the block out. However, the pipe explodes becoming a makeshift bomb. Henry and Orson are killed when shards of the pipe impale them in vital areas.
