Police released names of three more children who were in the rubble of the building: daughters of the Paraguayan president’s sister-in-law are also among victims
the police of Miami-Dade, Florida, announced Sunday night, 11, the names of 10 new victims found in the building rubble which crashed on the 24th at Surfside. The bodies were found on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th and identified through DNA tests. Among the confirmed deaths are the boy Lorenzo de Oliveira Leone, age five, and Alfredo Leone, age 48, son and husband of Brazilian Raquel de Oliveira, who escaped the accident because she had traveled to visit her parents in another state in the United States. . Lorenzo had Brazilian and Italian nationality, inherited from his parents. In addition to the boy, police identified the bodies of two other children on Sunday: Anna Sophia Pettengill López Moreira, 6, and Alexia Maria Pettengill López Moreira, 9 years old. The two were daughters of Sophia López Moreira, sister-in-law of Paraguay’s president Mario Abdo Benítez, who was also found in the rubble last week.
On Monday, 12, more bodies were found in the rubble and the death toll rose to 94. Eleven people were not identified and 22 bodies are still wanted. There is no longer any hope that anyone alive will be found and Israeli rescue teams, who arrived in the United States shortly after the collapse and searched for survivors for more than two weeks, returned home Sunday night. “The searches will continue until all the people trapped under the rubble are removed,” Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett said in an interview with the US channel ABC News. Victims’ personal effects were also removed from the landslide site and are cataloged to be returned to survivors or relatives of the dead. Among them are documents, jewelry, wallets, family albums and even bottles of wine and artwork that were left intact.
