Two Miami-Dade County public school students are among the more than 150 people missing after a Florida condo building partially collapsed last week, a report said.
The school district has only been able to make contact with 15 of the 17 students who are registered as residents at the Champlain Towers South building in Surfside, Miami-Dade Superintendent Alberto Carvalho told the Miami Herald Monday.
It was not clear which schools the missing students attend.
The United Teachers of Dade posted on Facebook the day after last week’s collapse that a retired physical education teacher and his wife were also unaccounted for.
“In the meantime, our hearts ache for all the impacted families especially our faculty and staff at Ruth K. Broad Bay Harbor K-8 Center who are trying to locate students that attend their school,” the organization said.
A massive wing of the oceanfront 12-story condo building crumbled at around 1:30 a.m. last Thursday, leaving at least 11 confirmed dead and more than 150 people unaccounted for.
Search-and-rescue crews are continuing to dig through the huge mound of rubble and debris at the disaster site for possible survivors.
