disaster

 

First off......my deepest sympathies to all those who are involved or victims of this tragic incident in surfside miami florida ........i sincerely hope that at the end of the day ....they do not attempt to re build on the mass grave yard ......and make it into a memorial park  for those who died  needlessly in this  disaster........

I think in between all of this  there will be  findings  of  negligence  somehow..... A building simply does not collapse  like this .......it is   sad .....tragic and  unnecessary ........i hope these people  find   peace and  semblance  at the end of this  tragedy........

A woman stood on the balcony of her fourth-floor apartment as the Florida condominium collapsedtold her husband on the phone that she could see the pool "caving in" seconds before the line went dead, Sky News reported.

Cassie Straton was speaking to her husband, Michael, from their balcony on the south side of the Champlain Towers when she noticed the building started shaking in the early hours of Thursday, her older sister Ashely Dean said.

"Suddenly she says, 'honey, the pool is caving in. The pool is sinking to the ground,'" Dean said, according to Sky News.

"He said, 'what are you talking about?' And she says, 'the ground is shaking, everything's shaking' and then she screamed a blood-curdling scream and the line went dead," Dean added.

Straton is among the 159 apartment residents who are still unaccounted for as of Saturday, the BBC reported.

The official death toll currently stands at four people.

"We've never been able to see her again because she's in there. She's trapped in there," Dean told Sky News. "I have to be realistic; my baby is gone, my baby sister is gone."

Dean said that her sister had reportedly been complaining about the state of the apartment for months.

"My sister told me about all kinds of water leaks and people on her roof with heavy equipment," she said.

The condo was the subject of a 2015 maintenance suit by resident Matilde Fainstein, who said the building's owners "failed to repair or negligently repaired the common elements and the outside walls of the building," according to court documents seen by Insider.

It's unclear if the issues indicated there affected the collapse.

LEDERER Thu, October 21, 2021, 5:51 PM UNITED NATIONS (AP) — More than 40 mainly Western countries criticized China at a U.N. meeting on Thursday for the reported torture and repression of Uyghurs and other religious and ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, keeping a spotlight on the region where foreign governments and researchers say an estimated 1 million people or more have been confined in camps.

Ambassador Zhang Jun spoke soon after, denouncing “the groundless accusations” and unfounded “lies” and accusing the United States and a few other unnamed signatories of the
