Body found and identified in Florida's parking garage collapse
The body found in rumble of a collapsed parking garage in Jacksonville was identified as a missing construction worker, reports the Associated Press in the Star Tribune.
WIllie "L.B." Edwards' body was found early Saturday, two days after the garage in downtown Jacksonville collapsed. His body was removed and identified shortly after. He was 26.
Edwards had been trapped in a mix of crumbled concrete and wet concrete that dried around him, Fire Operations Chief Brady Rigdon said.
Reginald Edwards, the victim's brother, said Willie as working extra hours filling in for another worker to earn extra money. He planned to use the money to pay for toys he had put on layaway for his two children.
The garage collapsed while workers were pouring concrete on the sixth floor. Officials are not sure of the cause and the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration will begin investigating on Monday.
