Miami Condo Collapse: 40 Years Old by Haley Victory Smith
99 Still Missing After South Florida Condo Collapse
A pool contractor photographed damage to the Champlain Towers South condo building in Surfside, Florida, 36 hours before half of it collapsed.
The man, who asked not to be named in a Monday report published by the Miami Herald, visited the building to put a bid together for cosmetic changes to the pool and updates to its equipment.
The contractor said he observed “standing water all over” the underground parking garage.
“He thought it was waterproofing issues,” the contractor said of a building staff member who showed him around. “I thought to myself, ‘That’s not normal.'”
