Missing Person Still in the Wreckage From the Miami Parking Garage Collapse

Missing Person Still in the Wreckage From the Miami Parking Garage Collapse

Wednesday, during construction on a Florida parking garage on the Miami Dade College campus, part of the garage collapsed killing 3, and injuring 8 victims so far. At this time the firefighters and rescue team are still trying to find the last person who is still missing, believed to be trapped in the wreckage and likely dead by this point. The third man who was killed from the accident was recovered from the rubble 13 hours after the incident, and by that time he was already dead. The other two men that were killed were removed quickly from the rubble though they died at the hospital.

Out of the 8 injuries, one man was sent home and the other 7 are at the hospital though the extent of their injuries remains uncertain. At the time of the accident, the construction workers were the only one on the scene, so no college students or staff were injured from the collapse. At this time in the search, many of the rescue people are saddened because while they continue to look for the body, it is very unlikely that he is still alive. According to reports they will continue the search until nightfall, and continue on, acknowledging the fact that a search in this type of accident could take days.

The cause of the accident is still unknown, though as with any places of construction there are so many possibilities. Ajax Building Corp. is conducting an internal investigation in order to discover the problem, along with law enforcement who wants to get to the bottom of the accident.
