Global News published this video item, entitled “Surfside building collapse: 4 Canadians among missing as search for survivors continues into 5th day” – below is their description.

It’s day five of the precarious search and rescue mission in Surfside, Fla. where more than 150 people are still missing in the high-rise condo collapse, including four Canadians.

Hope is increasingly fading of finding people alive under the rubble, as the death toll has risen to 9 people after the 12-storey Champlain Towers South collapsed on Thursday in Surfside, just north of Miami.

A Global Affairs Canada (GAC) official said two Canadian families were living in the condo building at the time of the collapse, but an individual from a third family was staying with one of them.

Global’s Jackson Proskow is on the ground with more.
