The remains of one of the workers killed in the collapse of the Hard Rock Hotel in New Orleans is now visible from Canal Street.

A tarp that was in place was apparently blown loose, according to WWL-TV.

Mayor Latoya Cantrell says there is little the city can do about the exposed body, and she is asking people to not take photos.

Photos began circulating on social media on Tuesday.

The city plans to impose the remains of the building in March.
