The family of Stacie Fang identified her as a victim killed in the building collapse in Surfside, Florida, in a statement to CNN Friday.
Fang is the mother of Jonah Handler, who was pulled alive from the rubble, the family statement said.
"There are no words to describe the tragic loss of our beloved Stacie. The members of the Fang and Handler family would like to express our deepest appreciation for the outpouring of sympathy, compassion and support we have received. The many heartfelt words of encouragement and love have served as a much needed source of strength during this devastating time," the family said in a statement.
They are asking for privacy at this time.
