Robert Budhoo’s body was removed from the rubble of the Miami Dade College garage collapse Thursday, an attorney for the family said.
His body is the last to be recovered from the site of the garage, which fell down on Miami Dade College’s west campus in Doral last Wednesday.
Dozens of workers were on the scene Thursday, and a van from the medical examiner’s office arrived at about 4 p.m.
Attorney Alan Goldfarb then told reporters that the family had been informed that Budhoo's body had been recovered by fire rescue.
"And they want to thank the fire rescue and fire workers and police that put forth a tremendous effort, and they actually gave a big prayer for them," Goldfarb said. "And they’re very thankful that nobody else was injured in recovering Robert’s body.”
Members of the Budhoo family were at the scene Thursday but did not comment.
Investigators said Monday that they believed they had found Budhoo deep within the rubble. The 53-year-old man was an electrical worker.
Now, the medical examiner's office will work to formally confirm the identity of the body.
Four people were killed in the collapse last week. The Ajax Building Corp. has said it's still trying to determine the cause.
