Final Update: Building Collapse with Fatalities
Houston Firefighters, including Technical Rescue Teams and Hazmat with the assistance of SETRAC and HPD, recovered the final body of the victim of the building collapse earlier this afternoon. HFD has cleared the scene and turned the property back over to the owners (Marathon Oil) and Harvey Builders. HFD crews have been working around the clock, in a very dangerous situation to help bring closure for these families. Representatives of all three families have been in contact with HFD, and out of respect for them, identification of the victims is referred to the Medical Examiner’s Office. Three confirmed fatalities and one injured worker transported in stable condition to a hospital.
