Miami Condo Collapse Lawyer
Champlain Towers South sits beachside in Miami, Florida, and was built in 1981. The building was thirteen stories tall and contained approximately 135 residential units. However, at least half of the units collapsed on June 24 and caused an immense amount of damage. The collapsed side of the building is unrecognizable with balconies split in half, interior furniture crushed and appliances destroyed to the point of no return.
The death toll currently stands at four, while 159 people remain unaccounted for. So far, 120 residents have been accounted for. Approximately 35 people have been rescued from the side of the building that remained intact and two have been pulled from the rubble, according to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue assistant fire chief Ray Jadallah.
