The search efforts at a Miami-area condo building that collapsed June 24 shifted from rescue to recovery Wednesday, a devastating announcement that many families of the missing have been expecting for days.
Miami-Dade Assistant Fire Chief Raide Jadallah told families that after searching all areas of debris, they have concluded it will now be next to impossible to find people alive.
More heavy equipment was seen arriving at the site Wednesday afternoon, as recovery efforts continue.
It’s with profound sadness that tonight we transition our operation from search and rescue to search and recovery.
May God bring peace to all whose hearts have been broken, and may He watch over our community in the hard days ahead. pic.twitter.com/EZgyaj78P1
