PG&E power plant implosion spectator said PG&E official confiscated debris for investigation

Porter's video shows chaos in Lowe's parking lot

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Not more than 100 feet away in that same parking lot as the power plant implosion victim stood Doug Porter, another spectator.

Porter said he kept a piece of debris that struck his leg but it was later confiscated by a PG&E investigator.

Porter said that the investigator was intimidating and told Porter he would be obstructing the investigation if he didn't hand the debris over.

"It felt like a meteorite just landed right in front of you, it was just incredible," said Porter. "I thought it was going to start raining fire on us. Everyone just started turning around running."
