Updated: Jun 25
Early Thursday morning, a residential condo in Surfside, FL partially collapsed resulting in at least 4 deaths and at least 11 injuries. UPDATE: 159 people are still unaccounted for in the search-and-rescue operations.
More than 80 search-and-rescue units are on-site sorting through the debris searching for survivors.
Said Sgt. Marian Cruz of the Surfside Police Department, "We’re on the scene so it’s still very active. What I can tell you is the building is twelve floors. The entire back side of the building has collapsed."
Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett said on the "Today Show", "Apparently when the building came down it pancaked, so there’s just not a lot of voids that they are finding or seeing from the outside...This is a catastrophic failure of that building."
