12-storey building collapsed in the USA, no news of 51 people

The number of bodies recovered from the rubble of the collapsed building in Miami rises to 94

Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava stated at a press conference that 94 bodies were recovered from the wreckage of the building, and 22 people who were estimated to be in the wreckage could not be reached yet.

Cava shared the information that 83 of the 94 people in question were identified.

On the 14th day of the search and rescue efforts, the authorities announced that the possibility of finding live people from the wreckage was no longer, and the works would continue to find the bodies and remove the wreckage.


On June 24, half of the luxury condo building called “Champlain Towers”, which consists of 13 floors and 270 apartments, suddenly collapsed on the Surfside campus, north of Miami Beach, with a population of approximately 5,600.

Surfside district officials, in correspondence with the building management in 2018, noted that the 1981-built building had major structural damage, and reported that approximately $9 million in repairs was required for the cracked columns and crumbling concrete.

On the grounds that the building in question was not safe, the remaining southern part was demolished on July 4 at 22:30 local time.
