Global Affairs confirms bodies of 2 Canadians recovered from Florida condo collapse


Global Affairs said Saturday the bodies of two Canadians have been recovered in the wake of a condo collapse in Florida.

In a statement, Global Affairs says it’s offering consular assistance to the families of the victims, and added at least two Canadians remain unaccounted for.

“Canada sends its deepest condolences to the families and friends who lost a loved one,” spokesperson Grantly Franklin said in a statement.

Dozens of people were killed after a condo building in Surfside, Fla., abruptly crumbled in the early hours of June 24.

Many are still missing, and local officials say there was no longer hope of finding anyone alive in the rubble.

At least one of the Canadian victims has been identified.

Ingrid Ainsworth, 66, was found with her husband, also deceased, on Monday by search-and-rescue crews, sources with direct knowledge of the situation confirmed to CBC News.
