4 more bodies found hours after the demolition

SURFSIDE – Being able to search the entire pile of rubble for the first time, four more bodies were recovered Monday at the site of the Champlain Towers South condo, hours after the remaining standing portion of the condo was demolished.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava — who called the demolition’s execution “exactly as planned” — said crews have removed 4.8 million pounds of concrete from the pile.

She said although weather conditions, including lightning, caused temporary pauses in the search, the four additional bodies mean the total confirmed dead is now 28, while 117 are still unaccounted for.
