A chemical plant owner named Andris lies to safety inspectors about his waste disposal practices. When one of them notices a pipe leaking hazardous sodium hydroxide solution, he tries to stop the leak by closing a valve. Instead, the chemical spews all over him, destroying his skin and body tissues.

"Andris was a toxic criminal, who unknowingly destroyed the environment. When he got caught, instead of telling the truth, his "lye" came right up in his face."
