In the middle of the night on June 24, 2021, a 13-story section of the Champlain Towers South condominium complex roared to the ground, killing 98 people in Surfside, Florida.
Collapse: Disaster in Surfside is a 12-part investigative and narrative reporting project, a co-production of the Miami Herald and Treefort Media.
In the podcast, they were talking with survivors, witnesses, experts, first responders, and journalists to get the whole story of Surfside. How the building went up, and why it went down. We’re piecing together 911 calls, police body camera recordings, surveillance footage, and forensic engineers digging deep into the evidence to find the truth.
What went wrong? Who’s going to be held accountable? Could something like Surfside happen again? We’re looking for answers.
And we’re meeting the people who called it home. We’re getting the stories of the lives lived and lost there.
