Four people have died from the Surfside building collapse according to Rachel Johnson, spokesperson for Miami-Dade Mayor’s office.
The mayor of Miami-Dade told ABC that three bodies were pulled from the Champlain Towers South wreckage overnight, though none of them have been identified.
“Tragically, I woke up to learn that three bodies had been pulled from the wreckage overnight,” Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said Friday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Levine Cava said the development is “devastating news for families waiting for any hope for survival.”
She confirmed there are now four total dead, but said she is “very hopeful” there are people who can still be rescued.
The mayor said 102 people have been accounted for, “and that number is way up from the original count so we are very, very grateful.”
