The victim had each of his limbs spread apart and tied to the to each side of the wheel, as the torturer simultaneously smashed the victim's limbs with an iron hammer to break them in numerous places. Once their limbs were broken, they were place on top of a tall pole so the birds could feed on the victim's flesh while still alive.

Next, the guards would snake a tube down the victim's nasal passage and bloat his belly with water. Once that was finished, the guards would kick and beat the poor sap's midsection until his stomach lining burst and death ensued.
