The death toll in the collapse of a condominium in Florida is 60 people
Rescuers said that since yesterday they managed to get 14 more people out of the rubble of the collapsed building.
The Miami Dade Fire Rescue held a press conference.
Among the found dead people, a lot of people still remain unidentified. Governor Ron DeSantis said their departments are continuing to operate.
“Yesterday was tough but the work is going to go on and they are going to identify every single person,” DeSantis said.
Of the confirmed deaths, 35 have been identified. In total, 200 people have been accounted for, Levine Cava said.
“And we have now officially transitioned from search and rescue to search and recovery. The work continues with all speed and urgency. All task forces are being deployed from across the country in the world,” Levine Cava continued.
In tribute to lives lost, our rescue teams held a moment of silence & prayer near the Surfside building collapse. With heavy hearts, we begin search & recovery efforts, and will continue to give our all as our commitment still remains to reunite families with their loved ones. pic.twitter.com/FJ7GKWXhXn— Miami-Dade Fire Rescue (@MiamiDadeFire) July 8, 2021
