  • When eventually Airman Pratt takes a picture of Stark with Airman Jimmy, the Humvee in front of them explodes. Senior Airman Ramirez is shot the very moment she gets out of the car. Pratt orders Jimmy to protect Stark, but is also shot the moment he gets out of the Humvee. Then Jimmy orders Start to stay in the car, but when he gets out as well, he is shot by several bullets.
  • Surrounded by the deafening noise and gunshots, Stark exites the Humvee and tries to find a shelter. Yet, as he attempts to make a phone call, a Stark Industries-tagged bomb falls at his feets. He barely avoids the explosion but is propelled by the blast. Despite his bulletproof vest, Stark is badly wounded on the chest.
