“We were devastated to hear of the catastrophic Champlain Towers building collapse in Surfside,” the team said.
“Our hearts go out to the victims and their families. We are thankful for the first responders who are working around the clock in rescue efforts.”
Authorities are still trying to piece together why the building collapsed … explaining it’s all very bizarre considering the place was built in 1981.
