The miracle did not happen: Two weeks after a partial collapse of a residential building in Florida, the authorities believed they could not find any survivors. It is believed that the bodies of 86 people are still under the rubble.

resistanceTwo weeks after a partial collapse of a high-rise apartment building in Florida, rescuers stopped searching for survivors. Miami-Dade District Chief Executive Daniella Levine Cava (Daniella Levine Cava) said Wednesday that for search and rescue operations, all available options have been exhausted. Therefore, they made an “extremely difficult decision.” From midnight, the helpers will concentrate on salvaging the corpse.

It said that eight more bodies were found in the past few hours. This brings the official death toll to 54. 86 people are still suspected of being under the rubble of a nearby Surfside building in Miami.

“Major structural damage” was reported many years ago

Last weekend, the wreckage of a partially collapsed residential high-rise was blown up in a controlled manner. As the tropical storm “Elsa” escalated into a hurricane at the same time, the remains of the building are also threatened with collapse.

On the evening of June 24, the twelve-story residential building of Champlain Towers South partially collapsed. The exact cause of the accident is still unknown. However, in 2018, the assessment had found that the building had “significant structural damage” and the building was completed in 1981.
