Great piece of horror fiction, I hope, haha.
But, if it's true here's what I think happened - being awake for so long was too much for the human spirit. The souls left the bodies, (or were
taken out). As these bodies were still alive and breathing, and awake but empty, entities from the lower astral realms took over. i.e. The men were
possessed by demons who demanded the gas for fear they'd be kicked back into their own realm by sleep.
