6 monate vor


Nearly 100 people are still missing, Friday, June 25, after a 12-story building collapsed in Miami, Florida. ————————— READ MORE: The Champlain Towers South drew people from around the globe to enjoy life on South Florida's Atlantic Coast, some for a night, some to live. A couple from Argentina and their young daughter. A beloved retired Miami-area teacher and his wife. Orthodox Jews from Russia. Israelis. The sister of Paraguay's first lady. Others from South America. They were among the nearly 100 people who remained missing Friday morning, a day after the 12-story building collapsed into rubble early Thursday. Much of the Champlain's beach side sheared off for unknown reasons, pancaking into a pile of concrete and metal more than 30 feet (10 meters) high. Only one person had been confirmed dead, but officials feared that number could skyrocket. Eleven injuries were reported, with four people treated at hospitals. "These are very difficult times, and things are going to get more difficult as we move forward," Miami-Dade Police Director Freddy Ramirez said. ————————— LINK: https://www.voanews.com/usa/collapsed-miami-building-drew-global-visitors-residents
