Mazda: I am trying to figure out where to plug the power steering

the cone ripped the line out of where ever its supposed to go and the fluid leaked out. There is minor cosmetic front end damage but I was able to drive the car home.. It was only when I got home did the steering get extremely stiff (which is why I'm assuming its the power steering fluid that's leaking all over the place. I can't see where to plug the line back in. It is going to be a harder fix than just putting it back where it was ripped out of?

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.More than likely whatever it was ripped out of is going to have to be replaced.Are you able to take a picture of the line so I can tell which line it is so I can tell where it came from? I would assume if it was ripped out it was either ripped off of the pump or ripped out of the power steering rack.
