Jul 11, 2024 | Press Releases

This year marks the third anniversary of the tragic condo collapse in Surfside, Florida. U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Rick Scott (R-FL) led a resolution to recognize the fallen victims and the bravery of the first responders. The resolution passed the Senate unanimously. 

  • “Three years ago, 98 people lost their lives in the tragic partial collapse of Champlain Towers South in Surfside. While a community has been forever changed, we will never forget the lives lost. We also continue to thank those who bravely responded.” – Senator Rubio
  • “It’s been three years since the Surfside community experienced an unimaginable and tremendous loss with the collapse of Champlain Towers South. We lost 98 lives that day, and countless others woke up to the heartbreaking news that they would never again see their children, friends, parents, grandparents or loved ones. Immediately, in the face of great danger, our first responders answered the call, and our community and organizations from around the world came together in mourning and to support those affected, especially in our Jewish community—they showed what it meant to be Surfside Strong. I continue to pray for those families who were affected by this sudden tragedy, and I am proud to join Senator Rubio to honor the community and the 98 lives lost that solemn day.” – Senator Scott
