Corvette C8 fell off lift, I feel bad for the tech.

After seeing the aftermath I was curious as to the real jacking points and found the good video below (he takes the camera and does a close up on the actual car). I feel bad for the tech because GM has slots for lifting points near holes for strapping down during transit. They look awfully close together, and even if some training was provided, sticking your head under car and looking at the sill it is hard to tell the two apart. It is made worse by the cut outs in the lower cladding that draws the eye to the strap down holes.

With 40/60 weight distribution I assume lift point placement is really important.
