Crews to search for 4th victim in garage rubble


Associated Press



MIAMI (AP) — Crews will continue searching through piles of twisted steel and concrete for a man still missing two days after a parking garage collapsed at Miami Dade College's west campus.

The missing man's family huddled nearby Thursday waiting for word. Police told them it could take days to find someone in the rubble. The search will resume Friday morning, two days after the five-story structure fell to the ground, killing three.

Two workers pulled from the rubble died at a Miami hospital Wednesday. Another man was rescued 13 hours after the collapse, but died a short time later at the hospital.

Officials say eight others were injured when the structure fell around noon Wednesday.

The men worked for subcontractors of Ajax Building Corp., which is handling the construction project.
