Dolphins, other Miami teams providing relief after condo collapse

USA TODAY Sports

A tragic situation in Miami has resulted in a massive mobilization of first responders and volunteers searching through the rubble of a collapsed condo. Miami’s pro sports teams have provided relief to those involved.

Via Sports Business Journal, the Dolphins (along with the Heat, Marlins, and Panthers) have provided food and supplies at the site of the collapse. The Dolphins sent multiple food trucks.

Mike Cugno of CBS Miami has posted video of Jaylen Waddle and Jerome Baker bringing supplies to the family reunification center.

Currently, four have died and 159 are missing. Crews are using microphones and dogs as they search for survivors buried in the rubble of the 12-story condo that partially collapsed.

It’s a horrible situation for those involved. The search for survivors inevitably will result in the discovery of more bodies. Those doing the searching need as much support as they can get, in whatever form they can get it. Hopefully, other Miami institutions will be inspired by the efforts of the pro sports teams to pitch in.

  1. Proud of my local pro sports teams stepping up in time of grief and tragedy! πŸ˜”

  2. This is normally a third world problem. The building inspector better start looking for a lawyer.

    100%. Unless you live down here, and especially in Miami-Dade, you just don’t understand how something like this can happen. Those that do know otherwise. Wasn’t too long that a bridge collapsed around FIU with casualties. Last year, a controlled demolition of a condo on Collins Ave. in Miami Beach got bungled and somebody was killed from debris that was blasted onto the middle of the street.

    That building had been sinking for 4 years. Owner has a reckoning coming

    Isn’t that going to be a problem? The original ownership of the property dates back 40 years ago, but the property now is comprised of condominiums. In such a case, the condo association, made up of all the individual unit owners is the “owner”.

  6. I still can’t believe that this happened.
    A very large part of Miami was built on profits from cocaine at the time this tower was built.
    It’s not out of the realm of possibility that this was shady financially and shady craftsmanship. No building should collapse after 40 years. I don’t care where it’s built.
