Last missing person identified after house collapse in Florida

98 fatalities – that is the sad result of the accident in which a residential complex in the US state of Florida partially collapsed around a month ago. A 54-year-old woman was previously thought to be missing.

Miami – A good month after the partial collapse of a twelve-story skyscraper in the US state of Florida, emergency services have identified the remains of the last missing person.

The death toll of the devastating accident rose to 98. This was announced by the Mayoress of Miami-Dade, Daniella Levine Cava. A 54-year-old woman had previously been considered missing.

The residential complex known as Champlain Towers South with around 130 units had partially collapsed on June 24th in Surfside near Miami for reasons that were still unexplained. The rest of the building, in danger of collapsing, was later deliberately blown up. Survivors were only found in the first hours after the collapse. Around two weeks ago, the rescue was therefore converted into a salvage operation. At the weekend, the fire brigade finally stopped their rescue work at the accident site.

Almost all of the debris was removed and stored near Miami International Airport. There, police forensic experts are now continuing their search for human remains and personal effects. The disaster had shaken the community and the whole country badly.

Mayor Levine Cava spoke of an “unthinkable tragedy” on Monday. Nothing could bring the “98 angels” back, but the emergency services had done everything so that the relatives at least had certainty and could close. dpa
