The Champlain Tower South building in Surfside came down Thursday, and rescue crews continue to sift through the rubble of the 12-story condo in the hopes of finding survivors.

There are 149 people still not accounted for following the condo collapse in Surfside, Florida.

Shocking before-and-after photos show the destruction caused when a Florida condo building collapsed Thursday — killing at least one person and sparking a dramatic search and rescue mission.

Images show the 12-story Champlain Towers South Condo on Collins Avenue in Surfside, just north of Miami Beach, from above before it “pancaked” and imploded into a massive pile of gray rubble, officials said.

The tower’s roof and patio areas appear weather-worn in photos taken before the building came crashing down at around 1 :30 a.m. After the tragedy, images show debris spilling into the condo’s pool area as a dilapidated portion of the building remains standing.

A total of 35 residents were rescued and two were removed from the rubble after the building collapsed and trapped sleeping residents inside, fire officials said. 

One person died, 10 people suffered injuries and 99 were considered missing Thursday afternoon.

A 2020 study conducted by Shimon Wdowinski, a professor at Florida International University, found that the building, which was built in 1981, was sinking for decades.
