No, that photo isn’t rotated 90 degrees. The floor above has failed and the bathtub has fallen through. You can’t see it from this angle, but the only thing holding the tub in place is the drain pipe.

One of the difficult judgement calls that we face during field investigation is when a building is too badly damaged for us to continue inside. In this case, I went further into the building but did not walk directly below or near that tub.
