Family members and victims of the collapse of the Champlain Towers South, which took place on June 24, in Miami, in USA, should receive compensation of around US$ 150 million. The decision was made on Wednesday afternoon, 21, by Miami-Dade Court Judge Michael Hanzman. The amount, according to him, includes condominium insurance and the market value of each property. The building that collapsed had 12 floors that made up an entire block on the waterfront. The other part of the building was demolished for security reasons.

Michael Hanzman made it clear that this value corresponds to just one process, but there are countless others running simultaneously in different instances. To date, 97 bodies have been removed from the rubble — 96 of them have been investigated. Officials work with the possibility of another 95 people missing. Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber, a town next to Surfside, offered land to build a memorial to the victims. Miami Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava continues to assess the possibility.
