Imagine a parking area filled only with wrecked and obliterated vehicles - roofs smashed, glasses broken, number plates fallen, doors broken, just some of the many more things to be noticed of the wreckage. The imagination is not pleasant at all.

A recent video posted on Twitter by a resident of Saudi Arabia shows a parking lot exactly like described above. The video shows rescue teams inspecting damaged vehicles that have been recovered from a parking lot collapse in the city of Khobar, that took place in October last year. Trailers can be seen carrying recovered wrecked cars and placing them on the ground next to other such vehicles.
