On the right, another group is gathered around a large, badly damaged metal object, perhaps a vehicle. Near them, large pieces of metal debris, apparently from a railroad freight car, lie surrounded by shallow water. Large pieces of metal debris are scattered over the foreground. In the distance there is a lone man and behind him another bulldozer tractor. Further on, on both sides, there are large metal framework structures twisted and bent, probably from a warehouse roof or from the covered conveyor system.
