    The Miami-Dade mayor says another body was recovered overnight from the site of a collapsed condo building, bringing the confirmed death toll to 10.

    Daniella Levine Cava said Monday that 151 people who may have been in the building remained unaccounted for.

    Assistant Chief Raide Jadallah of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue emphasized the complexity of the rescue mission at a new conference Monday.

    “We’re not lifting, you know, floor by floor. We’re talking about pulverized concrete. We’re talking about steel,” he said. “Every time there’s an action, there’s a reaction.”

    Jadallah also stressed the risk to rescue crews, saying that family members of missing residents witnessed an accident at the site.

    “As the individuals continue to work feverishly with urgency, they witnessed a rescuer tumble 25 feet down the mound,” he said. “That is a perfect example of the situation that we’re dealing with.”

    Andy Alvarez, deputy incident commander with Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, tells ABC’s “Good Morning America” that more than 80 rescuers at a time are breaching the collapsed walls and tunneling underneath.

    He says they’ve found voids in the rubble where someone might have survived the collapse that happened Thursday.
