Florida condo collapse death toll rises to 60 as recovery work continues

Surfside, Fla

The death toll in the partial collapse of a Miami-area condo building hit 60 on Thursday as the effort to identify and recover the 80 people still unaccounted for – most of them presumed dead – continued at an urgent pace, officials said.

One day after declaring there was no longer hope of finding anyone alive in the rubble of the tower in Surfside, Florida, crews sifting through the wreckage found six more bodies – taking the number of fatalities to 60 – Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava told a news conference on Thursday morning.

Levine Cava said 80 people were still considered missing in the Champlain Towers South disaster, believed to have been inside the 12-story residential building when it abruptly crumbled on June 24.—Reuters
