“It’s not enough,” a distraught mother told DeSantis. “Imagine if your children were in there. You are going to leave here and you are going to take a nice picture. I know you are doing everything you can, but it’s not enough.”

Mother of Surfside building collapse victim lashes out at DeSantis for not ‘doing enough’

I understand pain and desperation, but they are trying to safely move tons of concrete so they do not make things worse and in case there are survivors. Truly I believe they are all gone.

I hope I am wrong at least one time.

  1. And, bluntly, they go slowly so there is at least the chance for recovering something recognizable.

  2. I’d give her a pass on that. Doesn’t really seem like DDS, more like the standard reaction after a tragedy – no matter who is in charge, they’re never able to do enough. The media is definitely playing it up to try to hurt him, but they’ll take any opportunity to attack those to the right of Trotsky

    1. I was thinking the same. For unrelated third parties to act this way would be DDS, but victims are subject to special stresses and it’s reasonable to cut them some slack.

  3. IIRC, Miami-Dade Fire has an internationally recognized urban rescue crew. There are, also, several others, nationwide.

    I’d be surprised if half of those teams were not on scene, now.

  4. I think the first time the idea of getting trapped in a collapsed concrete structure and slowly dying of injuries or just dehydration lodged in my head was that San Francisco quake during the World Series in ’89, when the interstate collapsed and pancaked a bunch of cars. The collapse at 9/11 only reinforced that.

    A truly horrible way to die compared to the concrete just killing you outright during the collapse. At least that’s quick. Whenever something like this happens, there’s usually someone who makes it a week, maybe 10 days, but I fear you’re right: they’ve already found everyone who will get out of this one alive. With the Miami weather, death by dehydration probably is over with in a three or four days, especially if injuries are present.

    The DDS is awful, but 100% predictable, as you say.

  5. I’ll give her a pass, but what exactly is DeSantis supposed to do? Use his magic powers to levitate all the concrete?

    Oh wait, he can’t do that.

  6. She might have a case to blame the local mayor and city council, except does she even know their names, and would that make the narrative and allowed to be broadcast as news?

    Seriously, she screams, “Mayor Sunshine City killed my boy!,” and most of the press say ‘Poor Overwrought Woman,’ but with Evil Governor DeSantis mentioned? They hate him too! Broadcast News Gold Baby!

  7. I’ll give a victim or victim’s relative a pass on histrionics.

    But the journo who went with “doing all you can” = “not enough” needs to be kicked.
