Florida Condo Collapse Death Toll Rises

Florida Condo Collapse Death Toll Rises
Calendar icon July 2, 2021

The tally of missing individuals in the Florida condo collapse has been reduced from 145 to 128 as of Friday, July,1. This news comes 8 days after part of the 13-story Miami condominium collapsed on June 24th.

As search and rescue efforts continue, authorities have announced the recovery of two more bodies, increasing the confirmed death toll to 20 people. Of the bodies recovered, one was the 7-year-old daughter of a Miami firefighter. The ages of all victims recovered now ranges from 4 to 92 years old.

As rescuers continue to comb through concrete up to 16-feet deep, they’re also facing new challenges. With the rest of the building threatening to collapse and a hurricane looming in the Atlantic, Florida officials have requested extra help.

Miami-Dade County officials have declined to release a list of names of the nearly 128 people who remain unaccounted for. Many of their families remain gathered in South Florida, where they receive updates from officials and are able to ask them questions.

We will continue to monitor this breaking news story and provide updates when applicible.

Free Case Review




  • Thank you for all your help. It has been a long journey. At last, the light at the end of the tunnel. Also, thank Tom for the help and work he put in.


  • I am writing this letter to say how much I appreciate your services pertaining to my case. Your injury attorney took a hands-on approach and left me fully informed at all times as to where my case was going as well as how much ground we had to cover; leaving the final decisions in my hands but making sure that I knew all of the risks involved in the choices. I have dealt with a few law firms in my life on various different cases and this is the first time that I never had to call and/or track down my lawyer… because of this, I have and will continue to recommend Cellino Law to my friends and associates.


  • This letter is to thank Ms. Diane D’Andrea, assistant to Mr. George Gridelli, Attny for all the hard work, dedication, and attentiveness she showed during the representation of my case. She was always cheerful and ready to help in whatever way she could. All messages left for Mr. Gridelli were always relayed and Mr. Gridelli always promptly returned our calls. She was a very competent assistant. Cellino Law has proven to be a model of what legal representation should be. Throughout the 6 ½ years of this case, I have heard many horror stories from people with “bad lawyer stories.” We consider ourselves to be very lucky to have chosen Cellino Law and will always recommend you to those looking for good, honest representation with a personal touch.


  • We want to send a big "Thank you" from the both of us. We know you both fought for us and did a great job with our case. You did it in a timely manner and we appreciate it.

    Kerrijo & Jerry

  • Thank you for your efforts on my behalf. I am very pleased (and surprised) at the amount of the settlement. We will use the funds to help pay down the debt on the truck we had to purchase after ours was totaled. Thank you again.


  • Tim Cellino handled my case beautifully. He is very knowledgeable and patient with all my questions. He kept in touch with me through out my ordeal. Tim also got a settlement for more than I expected. I highly recommend Tim Cellino!
