I usually like fatal endings, but not this, please...
I would support the twist of a handsome jungle boy suddenly appearing to grab her out of the quicksands. He would be genre savvy enough to let the Purple monkey sink for good and would turn to reprimand her for letting herself entice by the idol, but she would hug him and shut him up with a kiss in reward. She then would go to bathe in a nearly waterfall and would return with him to continue the adventure... and maybe do the rest of the reward, who knows.
Those poor explorers probably died begging her constantly to pull them out until their mouths were under.
Imagine their ghosts appearing to tell her, "You were so heartless you wouldn't save us. We are immaterial spectres and can do nothing to help you whether we forgive you or not. Now you know how we felt and you will be joining our spirits soon.
Here is an idea. What if the quicksand was a hidden passageway? The explores and jungle girl falls through to a cavern. The mud hardens a little bit limiting movement and a scout team from a lost and unknown city finds the girls stuck and take them as prisoners?
^^ I saw Asami flying in, test-driving her new fairy-like body while pulling this girl outta the sands... Needless to say, the girl's fine now in all but one way--having had her yap shut like THAT allowed the sands to make a kind of gag. Asami's working hard to try and fix that.
