Update 3: Building Collapse with Fatalities

HFD Technical Rescue Teams remain on the scene of the collapse 24/7 with Harvey Contractors. Since the collapse, all construction processes have ceased with all efforts dedicated to the recovery process. Concrete members impeding access to the area have been removed and there is no threat of structural collapse. Crews are currently working to stabilize the large pile of debris and build access points with Cherry Demolition. Body recovery will depend on the time crews will require to safely remove the debris and what they find. Three confirmed fatalities and one injured worker transported in stable condition to a hospital.
