Ash's diary: "It has been a week since my team got trapped in these old tunnels. The cave-in has blocked every passage out of here, believe me we've looked. The Spinners keep coming, crawling out of the fucking walls...we're low on ammo and food. Kelly has a fever, I don't think he'll make it through the night. I wish there was a way to signal the others and let them know we're still alive, but the ground is too thick. No way they could hear us. The spider bite on my arm has been itching alot lately. I hope it isn't infected. I can't believe I survived the Rikers to die like this..."
