- Story Text: Memorials for victims of the collapsed Florida condominium building have sprung up across the community of Surfside, where heartbroken residents and hard working rescue workers pay their respects to the missing and the dead.
With hope waning for to find survivors in the rubble, photographs of the missing with their names were hung on a nearby fence. In the background, cranes could be seen working on the disaster site.
By late Monday, authorities had confirmed 11 victims of the deadly disaster and their identities, while some 150 people remain missing.
Those recovered from rubble in the oceanside town of Surfside included a young Puerto Rican graphic artist who refused to let a disability dampen his spirits, a devoted couple who had been married for nearly 60 years and a volunteer Little League baseball coach.
Victims include people of all ages and many nationalities, representing Miami's historic location as the site of the Latin American and Jewish diaspora.
