Police released the identities of three of the victims discovered in the rubble of the Florida condo collapse Saturday night.
Antonio and Gladys Lozano, ages 83 and 79, and Manuel “Manny” LaFont, 54, died in the disaster, Miami-Dade Police said in a Facebook post.
Authorities identified the remains of the three victims using DNA testing, dropping the number of those unaccounted for down to 156.
Stacie Fang, 54, was identified as a victim of the collapse on Friday. Her 15-year-old son Jonah Handler survived after rescuers pulled him from the rubble.
A fifth victim, whose remains were discovered on Saturday, has yet to be identified.
A Miami television meteorologist said that he was related to the Lozanos, mourning them as “beautiful people.”
“These are my Godmother and uncle. They were found today in the rubble of the collapsed condo building in Surfside,” 7News Chief Meteorologist Phil Ferro wrote on Instagram Saturday evening.
“They were such beautiful people. May they Rest In Peace.”
The Lozanos lived in apartment 903 of the doomed building. Rescue crews recovered Antonio’s body on Thursday and Gladys’ body on Friday, local outlet WPLG reported.
LaFont, a father of two, lived in apartment 804, police and the report said.
