Here are the Surfside condo collapse victims

AP SURFSIDE (1) 7.7.21
All 98 victims of the Champlain Towers South condo collapse have now been identified.

About 1:20 a.m. on June 24, Miami-Dade County dispatched first responders to Surfside for what was initially said to be a garage collapse. They arrived to something far graver. Half of the Champlain Towers South condo building had fallen, and hundreds of people were missing.

No survivors were found since those early hours. The ensuing weeks have included a demolition of the other half of the tower to allow crews, who worked through worsening weather conditions caused by Tropical Storm Elsa, to more safely search through the wreckage.

On July 7, Miami-Dade officials confirmed that work at the collapse site had shifted from a rescue mission to a search-and-recovery effort as no hope remained of finding survivors.

All 98 victims have since been identified, including 97 victims recovered from the collapse and one who died in the hospital. All 242 people of concern are accounted for.

“We have done everything possible to bring closure to the families, and I’m especially proud that through these tireless efforts we were able to at last bring closure to all the families who were missing loved ones,” Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said Monday during a press conference in which she announced that county medical examiners had identified the final victim.

Below is a list of the victims.
