The search for the deceased in the collapse of the Miami building concludes after one month

Miami authorities have concluded this Saturday the search for bodies among the rubble of the Surfside condominium building, in Florida, which collapsed on June 24. The event has resulted in 97 deaths and one more person is still missing and has not been identified, although forensic scientists are still examining the rubble of the warehouse, according to the US radio station ABC.

The Miami-Dade Fire Rescue urban search and rescue team has left the scene in a convoy of fire trucks and other vehicles, driving slowly towards their headquarters to hold a press conference in which they have announced the end of rescue work.

Police and forensics are still in the area

In this act, the chief of the Fire Brigade, Alan Comisnky, congratulated the firefighters for their efforts, as some of the officers have chained shifts of up to 12 hours. “I could not be more proud of the men and women who represent Miami-Dade Fire Rescue,” he said. However, the Police and forensic specialists are still on site to identify the remains of the victims recovered from the rubble. Otherwise, the site is empty, allowing engineers to begin examining the space and discover what may have caused the collapse, according to the FOX network.

On June 24, at around 1:30 a.m. (local time), the Champlain building collapsed in Surfside, located in Miami-Dade County, Florida. However, a 2018 report already revealed structural damage to the pool’s concrete floor, as well as signs of cracking in the parking lot of the residential complex.
