interesting arrangement of shoring left in situ...

What was the rated strength of that single (not quite vertical) piece of wood again?

Looking at the ceiling line I'm guessing there's only 2 or so rows left? Probably holding very little weight....

I assume the acro-prop in the front is holding majority of the weight.
