Tank vent riser through the canopy support?

Was on a site where a pump head, motor, motor column, riser and glass tank metal manway blew and came down 200 feet away through the canopy squed like a pretzel once. Parts of the STP sump a half block from the site. Strange stuff happens.
When you are dead it's likely you won't know it. It could be difficult for others. It's the same if you are stupid.
