Update 4: Building Collapse with Fatalities, 2 Bodies Recovered
Houston Firefighters, along with the assistance of Southeast Texas Regional Advisory Council (SETRAC) and HPD have recovered two of the three victims from Monday’s collapse and expect to recover the third body later today. The first victim was recovered at 10 a.m., approximately an hour ½ after recovery efforts began this morning, and the second recovery has just been made. 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.
