Friday marks the tragic one-year anniversary of the catastrophic condo collapse that killed 98 people. 7News is remembering Surfside. We caught up with the brave rescuers who responded with the focus on how their specially trained canine companions aided in the search for survivors, as well as provide comfort to the grieving families of the victims, and to the search team members who toiled day and night in the rubble. Here’s 7’s Kevin Ozebek. Officer Jihovanna Mayorga-Garcia, City of Miami Police Department: “I can still smell it. You can still see the sadness. To watch the people on the pile, to me was the worst.” It has been a year since the horrific collapse of Champlain Towers South, but the chilling memories are always there.
