Update: Still Searching for Survivors of Collapsed Building

We continue to pray for those who might still be trapped under the collapsed garage in Tel Aviv and hope the rescue team is successful in their search.

The Times of Israel reports:

…as the rescue team pulled the victim out of the rubble on a stretcher, wrapped in the white plastic bag, any hope or uncertainty regarding the man’s fate was dashed. The collapse had claimed another life.

The body, which was brought out just after 3:30 in the afternoon on Tuesday, was the third fatality to be extracted the rubble of a four-story underground parking garage being built in the Ramat Hahayal neighborhood of Tel Aviv that collapsed a little before 11:30 a.m. Monday.

Thus far, the rescue teams have taken out roughly a third of the debris, Mizrahi said.

It is slow and tedious work, and much of it is being done by hand. On Tuesday afternoon, Diamant estimated that the rescue teams have “at least another 24 hours” of work ahead of them.
