Collapsed condo demolition to start Sunday

The collapse of the Champlain Tower in Surfside, Florida, last week has killed at least 22 people and left 126 unaccounted for, Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said at a press conference Friday.

Driving the news: A Miami-Dade fire official told family members of individuals missing in the rubble that rescue workers plan to demolish the remainder of the building on Sunday, AP reports.

  • Raide Jadallah, the assistant chief of operations for Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, told family members during a Saturday morning briefing that the building would be brought down “as soon as possible. First thing tomorrow,” per AP.
  • Levine Cava on Friday signed an emergency order to allow engineers to demolish the wing of the Champlain Tower that remains standing.

What they're saying: "The building poses a threat to public health and safety, and bringing it down as quickly as possible is critical to protect our community," Levine Cava said.

The big picture: Search and rescue efforts were paused Thursday because of structural concerns about the standing portion of the building.

  • Officials at the site are preparing for the potential impact of Hurricane Elsa, which may hit Florida early next week.
  • Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Chief Alan Cominsky said Friday evening that six members of a Florida-based search and rescue team had tested positive for COVID-19, CNN reports.
  • "So we do have our medical procedures in place, you know, unfortunately, this is another challenge but something that we've been dealing with for over the past year," Cominsky said during the press conference.

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
