So far there are six deaths confirmed from the collapse of the pedestrian bridge at Florida International University. There are victims who have yet to be identified and are currently stuck under the bridge. The transition of a rescue mission to a recovery mission has been confirmed. According to NBC Los Angeles, The Miami-Dade Police and National Transportation and Safety Board Occupational Safety and Health Administration have taken over the scene Friday from first responders, who had spent hours racing to find survivors in the rubble of the 175-foot span using high-tech listening devices, dog and search cameras.
Currently, ten people are in the hospital for the treatment of their injuries and two were listed in critical condition.
