Five people confirmed dead and more than 150 still missing as search and rescue operation at collapsed condo building continues in Florida

More victims of condo collapse in Florida go to the list as the rescue operation at the rubbles of the 12-story building continues on the third full day.

Five people are dead and about 156 people are missing as of Sunday, officials say.

Three people were discovered on Saturday. They were identified as 83-year-old Antonio Lozano and his wife 79-year-old Gladys Loazno, and 54 father of two Manuel LeFront, according to Miami-Dade Police.

“It’s tragic but it’s strangely unsettling that I have peace knowing they would constantly play argue about who would pass first,” the couple’s grandson Brian Lozano said. “But in the end … they got what they both wanted. Each other.”

LaFront lived in apartment 804, reports said. Two children, the man’s son and daughter, were left without father. His ex-wife said that LeFront was sleeping at the moment when the tragedy happened.  

“When I saw it, I almost died,” Adriana LaFont, 42, told the newspaper in Spanish. “It felt like those walls fell on me, too.”

The very first victim of the collapse was identified on Friday, as 54-year-old Stacie Fang, whose 15-year-old son was pulled out of the rubbles alive.

The remains of the fifth victim were discovered on Saturday but the person still wasn’t identified.

Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said the rescuers' priority continued to be "saving as many lives as we can." 

Reports say that British pregnant woman, 38-year-old Bhavna Patel, and her husband, 42-year-old Aishani Patel are among those currently unaccounted.
