SURFSIDE, Fla. (AP) — Rescue crews pulled 10 more bodies from a collapsed condo building, and the emotional toll mounted as officials fought back tears and lamented the ordeal of victims’ exhausted families.
The 14th day of the search yielded the highest number of bodies found in a single day and pushed the death toll up to 46.
During a news conference, Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava repeatedly tried not to weep, paused and shook her head as she described the effect of the tragedy on rescue workers and victims’ families.
The latest retrievals reflect what rescue officials have said would be a ramped-up pace of work.
