Emilio jumped back in surprise at the rod thrown at his feet.
"What the--!" he exclaimed, staring at the rod then looking back at the machine. "It must be booby trapped."
He looked around him.
"Which means to owner must be somewhere near by."
Emilio reached out and pulled the rod from the sand with both hands. Holding it he walked in a half circle around and passed the machine, towards the town, careful to keep his back turned away from the machine. He held the rod out in front of him as he did so.
"I'm warning you... stay back," he said.
Upon making his way to the front he then hurled the rod at the thing before turning and running away towards the town.
