Miami collapse, searches for the 124 missing: the building will be demolished

Search and rescue operations in the rubble of the collapsed apartment building in Surfside, Florida have been officially suspended and the city of Miami is preparing to demolish the rest of the building. Local media reports. Much of the 12-story structure of the Champlain Towers South collapsed in seconds in the early morning of June 24 while the residents inside were sleeping. According to the latest communication from the officials who coordinated the relief efforts, the official death toll is 24 people extracted lifeless from the rubble. However 124 people are still missing, and the probability that they too will be among the dead is very high. Unfortunately, no survivors were pulled out of the rubble after the collapse. The assistant chief of the Miami fire brigade, Raide Jadallah, informed the relatives of the victims that the rescue operation was interrupted on Saturday afternoon and will not resume also due to the imminent arrival from Barbados of Hurricane Elsa, the first of the season. Experts are still unsure of the hurricane’s trajectory, but several models indicate that there is a good chance that Elsa will hit southern Florida.

Extracted the body of a 7-year-old girl, daughter of a firefighter

The latest victim extracted from the rubble of the collapsed building in Miami is a seven-year-old girl, the daughter of a firefighter. “When it was extracted – said Elad Edri, deputy commander of an Israeli rescue team – the firefighters formed two rows of honor. Then they hugged and cried”. In addition to the firefighter’s daughter, another body was extracted in the last few hours.
