    The mystery surrounding the 'voice in the rubble' of the Surfside condo collapse has finally been settled, almost a year after the Florida towers came crashing down, killing 98 people. Rescue crews spoke to a female trapped in the collapsed building, trying to rescue her but ultimately failing. In December it was reported that the victim was 14-year-old Valeria Barth, who was visiting the U.S. from Colombia with her parents, for a tennis tournament. USA Today reported that rescuers did not have the equipment to reach her, and that she may have burned to death in a fire caused by their equipment. Yet on Tuesday CBS Miami obtained an April 25 memo from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, which concluded that the teenager was not the 'voice in the rubble'. Instead, Raied Jadallah, Miami-Dade deputy fire chief, concluded that the voice belonged to Theresa Velasquez, a 36-year-old music executive from Los Angeles who was visiting her parents at the time of the collapse. Theresa Velasquez, 36 (left), is now believed to be the 'voice in the rubble'. Initial reports suggested it was...

    By Hilmar Gudmundsson, Adrian Jenkins, and Bertie Miles East Antarctica’s Conger ice shelf—a floating platform the size of Rome—broke off the continent on March 15, 2022. Since the beginning of satellite observations in the 1970s, the tip of the shelf had been disintegrating into icebergs in a series of what glaciologists call calving events. Conger was already reduced to a 50km-long and 20km-wide strip attached to Antarctica’s vast continental ice sheet at one end and the ice-covered Bowman Island at the other. Two calving events on March 5 and 7 reduced it further, detaching it from Bowman and precipitating its final collapse a week later. The world’s largest ice shelves fringe Antarctica, extending its ice sheet into the frigid Southern Ocean. Smaller ice shelves are found where continental ice meets the sea in Greenland, northern Canada and the Russian Arctic. By restraining how much the grounded ice flows upstream, they can control the loss of ice from the interior of the sheet into the ocean. When an ice shelf like Conger is lost, the grounded ice once kept behind the...
    (CNN)A construction worker died Saturday after suffering a "substantial" fall while apparently inside a crane at a Boston parking garage that partially collapsed while it was being demolished, officials said. The collapse was reported to first responders around 5:40 p.m., Boston Fire Commissioner Jack Dempsey said during a news conference.When rescuers arrived at the garage in the Government Center area of Boston, they saw the construction worker was at the bottom of the collapse, Dempsey said. The worker is believed to have been in the crane when it fell about nine stories, Boston Police Capt. Kelley McCormick said during the news conference, noting there was "a tremendous amount of debris.""It's a building being demolished, so those buildings are always dangerous," Dempsey said. Read MoreThe worker won't be recovered until engineers complete an evaluation of the area and determine it is structurally secure, officials said."We're not going to put anybody in there until it's safe to do so," the fire commissioner said.A passerby who witnessed the collapse requested to be taken to the hospital, a Boston EMS official said.

    Vladimir Putin's war in Ukraine will be a 'total failure' comparable to the collapse of Nazi Germany, a report by a so-called FSB analyst has claimed. The over 2,000-word report added that Russia's forces have 'no options to victory, only defeat' as they continue to meet strong Ukrainian resistance, that experts believe has surprised many in Moscow including the president himself. It said that the number of Russians killed in Ukraine could already be over 10,000 - a figure similar to that reported by Kyiv officials - and far more than the 498 dead soldiers officially acknowledged by the Kremlin. The whistleblower also claimed the FSB - Russia's successor to the Soviet Union's feared KGB - was being blamed for the failure of Moscow's forces to make significant progress into Ukraine, despite being given no advanced warning of the invasion. The report also said Russia's government has lost contact with a number of its divisions that have been sent into Ukraine, meaning they had no accurate death toll. It came as former Russian Foreign Minister Andrei Kozyrev insisted that Putin is...
    A Pennsylvania motorist spoke out about the moment he warned other drivers about the Pittsburgh bridge collapse before one of the cars rolled down into the debris.  Driver Jeremy Habowski considers himself lucky to be a survivor after he and other motorists were unable to stop their vehicles in time during the collapse.  'The scariest part was definitely going over the edge because there was a gap and my car left the ground,' Habowski told CNN. He then checked on another driver following the collapse and attempted to stop other vehicles from driving into the debris. 'I got off the bridge and started crawling up the hill to warn other drivers,' he continued. 'But the silver car ended up going over when I neared the top.' Other vehicles, however, managed to stop in time after the silver car went drove over the edge. During the collapse, four vehicles were on the bridge at the time with only 10 minor injuries reported at the scene, according to Pittsburgh Fire Chief Darryl Jones. 'It was a lot to take in,' Habowski added....
    Glaciers like this found in Antarctica are at major risk of shrinking and fueling sea level rise due to climate change. The final weeks of 2021 sure are ending on a strange note, especially when it comes to the weather in the United States. Northern California is facing record snowfall that still falls short of compensating for the summer, which saw California’s most extreme drought in recorded history. Though more than 17 inches have fallen in Central Sierra Nevada over the course of the month, nearby reservoirs remain at levels far lower than average. Farther north in Alaska, a tide gauge in Kodiak Island recorded its hottest temperature on record in the state for the month of December at 67 degrees. Other Alaskan regions like the city of Cold Bay also saw record temperatures. Though such intense weather patterns may feel like an anomaly, they may be early signs of what’s to come given the ongoing climate crisis. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Climate portal shows what we all know: Warmer-than-average temperatures have continued to trend for decades, and the rise in...
    A Russian nationalist who criticised Vladimir Putin and predicted civil war fell to his death from a fifth-floor window in Moscow.   Yegor Prosvirnin, 35, from Vladivostok, Russia, was found naked 'under the windows of a residential building' on Tverskaya Street in the centre of Moscow on December 27.  According to local media reports, he died before the ambulance arrived and his wife Marina Urusova later confirmed his death.  Yegor Prosvirnin, 35, from Vladivostok, Russia, fell to his death from a fifth-floor window in Moscow on December 27 He was found naked 'under the windows of a residential building' on Tverskaya Street in the centre of Moscow on December 27 According to local media reports, he died before the ambulance arrived and his wife Marina Urusova later confirmed his death Mr Prosvirnin (pictured) founded the controversial right-wing blog Sputnik and Pogrom, which supported the annexation of Crimea Mr Prosvirnin allegedly threw 'knife and gas canister' from the fifth floor window, whilst neighbours heard 'screaming and swearing' before he fell, according to BBC Russia.   Russian politician Roman Yuneman told the Podyom newspaper that he met with the journalist...
    Promising data from South Africa, the world's first Omicron hotspot, suggest that the country's Omicron-driven Covid wave is fading after just one month. After seeing a 1,800 percent increase in infections from late November through mid-December, cases appear to have peaked nationally at about 27,000 on December 15. Cases have fallen in the country for the last five days in a row. Between December 15 and December 22, the case rate has dropped by about 22 percent. At the same time, data from South Africa suggests that Omicron cases are more likely to be mild, in part because vaccinated and previously infected people who catch the variant have protection from severe disease. In the U.S., new Covid cases are rising sharply with about three in four cases nationwide caused by Omicron. On Wednesday, the US recorded a staggering 238,378 new daily infections, and 2,024 new deaths. Since the start of the pandemic, the US has recorded 51.5 million cases of COVID-19 and 812,069 deaths.  The Omicron variant now accounts for 73 percent of new cases in the US and pushes...
    JEFF Bezos is being slammed online after celebrating his Blue Origin space trip instead of the collapse at one of his Amazon warehouses which ended up killing six people. A tornado barreled through Edwardsville, Illinois, hitting an Amazon warehouse that trapped around 100 workers inside. Six of them perished as a result. 5Jeff Bezos is getting slammed online for posting about his Blue Origin space mission instead of the Amazon warehouse collapse that killed six workersCredit: Instagram/@jeffbezos 5A tornado ripped through Edwardsville, IL, trapping over 100 workers insideCredit: AFP The Amazon founder made no mention of the tragedy when he went on social media praising a successful landing of one of his Blue Origin missions. “Happy crew this morning in the training center,” the billionaire wrote on Instagram along with a photo of “Good Morning America” host Michael Strahan, a daughter of Apollo 14 astronaut Alan Shepard and four others. A majority of the comments applauded Bezos on the successful mission but others weren’t so kind. “You should worry about the tornado situation more,” wrote one user. Another person asked,...
    Fox News senior strategic analyst Gen. Jack Keane argued on "The Faulkner Focus" Thursday that the collapse of Afghanistan was an "accelerant" for America's adversaries to try to take advantage of President Biden's "accommodation" administration as Russian President Vladimir Putin gathers forces on the Ukraine border. BIDEN SAYS SENDING US TROOPS TO UKRAINE 'NOT ON THE TABLE' GEN. JACK KEANE: I do believe that this administration is being challenged by Russia, Iran and also China. They're looking at it as an appeasement and accommodation administration that can be taken advantage of. And certainly after the collapse of Afghanistan, that has become an accelerant to our adversaries moving even more earnestly to take advantage of it. Witness what's happening here with 110,000 troops on the [Ukraine] border. WATCH THE FULL INTERVIEW BELOW: Video This article was written by Fox News staff.
    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami) — Hoping to make a difference, the brother of a Surfside condo collapse victim testified in Tallahassee on Tuesday against a bill that would lower the amount of time to file a lawsuit over building defects. “Senate Bill 736 is proposing the opposite of what needs to be done after such an unimaginable event,” said Martin Langesfeld, who lost his sister Nicole and her husband in the Champlain Towers South collapse that killed 98 people on June 24. READ MORE: 'I Regretted What I Had Done': North Miami Beach Teen Jeimy Henriquez Back Home After Weekend DisappearanceSince the Surfside tragedy, he’s been fighting for his family and any others, pushing for better laws and more accountability surrounding developers and building construction. As it stands now, if there is a defect in the building you’re living in, you can file a lawsuit against contractors and builders within 10 years.  The proposed law would cut that timeframe down to just four years. Langesfeld says during a time when developers should be held accountable, this bill is proposing the opposite. “When...
    By Megan Hickey and Marie Saavedra OAK PARK, Ill. (CBS) — The clock was ticking late Tuesday for dozens of people living in an Oak Park building. READ MORE: Mayor Lori Lightfoot To Testifying Before House Subcommittee On Vaccine HesitancyThey have ordered to leave, immediately, because of concerns the building may collapse. And as CBS 2 Investigator Megan Hickey reported, many residents of the building, at 930 North Blvd. near Kenilworth Avenue, say they have nowhere to go. The residents were given just five days’ notice to pack up all of their belongings and move out. People continued to move out of the building through the evening Tuesday – sometimes one box at a time – while the lobby remained full of boxes and tape. A stack of extra U-Haul boxes were also set up for people to use. Residents said they are just waiting to hear about next steps. “It’s completely chaotic,” one man who lives in the building said. The Village of Oak Park said 930 North Blvd. is in “imminent danger of failure or collapse.” “All of...
    THE Astroworld disaster is one of the worst crowd atrocities in US history and had a "haunting similarity" to a 2016 concert where nearly 50 people were injured after a railing collapsed, the lawyer who litigated that case has told The Sun. Both concerts were run by promoter Live Nations and were "poorly planned," attorney Andrew Duffy told The Sun in an exclusive interview. 4There was an estimated 50,000 people at at Saturday's Astroworld concert in HoustonCredit: Sky, LIVE / Apple music 4Crowds are seen spilling from a raised area after a partition collapses during a 2016 Snoop Dogg concertCredit: Twitter / Karen Civil In 2016, a crowd rushed the stage of a Snoop Dogg concert in Camden, New Jersey - just like they did during Saturday's Travis Scott performance in Houston. As many as 42 were injured when a partition collapsed during the surge, sending revellers tumbling from a raised section. But no one died during the New Jersey concert; eight people died during Scott's Astroworld gig. "This was among one of the worst crowd-control...
    Mexico City prosecutors want to bring criminal charges against companies and individuals for the construction and design defects that caused an elevated subway line to collapse in May, killing 26 people. Ernestina Godoy, the city attorney general, said studies found that construction defects like poor welds and missing connection studs caused the collapse. She said bad design also played a role. Ms Godoy did not identify individuals who will face charges of homicide, causing injury and damages.

    Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin both tried to warn the president to slow down the Afghanistan withdrawal, but a stubborn Biden insisted on pressing forward, according to Bob Woodward.  'Biden was insisting that we've got to get out now,' Woodward, associate editor at the Washington Post and author of the new tell-all 'Peril, said on MSNBC Tuesday morning.   'It turns out March of this year, Biden's top cabinet officers Tony Blinken, the Secretary of State and Lloyd Austin, the Defense Secretary, proposed formally in all of these discussions to slow down the process,' Woodward continued.  'Austin, particularly says, 'gate the withdrawal. A few here, a few now, don't do it in one sweep,' and you now look back at that, and that probably was good advice that was not taken.' Bob Woodward and Robert Costa's tell-all book hits the shelves on Tuesday  But Biden was intent on ending the two decade-long war before the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the attack that prompted its inception.  According to 'Peril,' Blinken was initially on board with the...
    A senior Democratic lawmaker challenged the credibility of the top U.S. general and President Joe Biden’s national security team in a parting blow ending Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s two-day cycle of jousts with congressional Republicans. “The notion that General Milley said that ‘nothing I or anyone else indicated a collapse of this army or this government in 11 days,’ I just don't think that's true,” Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine said as a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing drew to a close. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley made that comment last month as U.S. forces poured into Kabul for a last-minute evacuation under the watch of the Taliban, which had seized the capital city following a blitz across the country. Biden’s team has cited his characterization of the intelligence warnings to justify the idea that it drew up withdrawal plans that were reasonable based on the available information, but Kaine signaled his alignment with Republican colleagues who rejected that defense. “If the administration really said, 'Nobody could see this coming,' then that probably suggests that the contingency planning...
    NABIL FEKIR admits his failed move to Liverpool in the summer of 2018 was a 'dark moment' in his career. The France international - who at the time was plying his trade in his homeland - was on course to swap Lyon for Merseyside after Liverpool agreed a £50million deal for the midfielder. 3Nabil Fekir was set to join Liverpool in 2018 before the £53million move collapsedCredit: Reuters 3The France international ended up joining Real Betis 12 months laterCredit: Rex But the deal ended up collapsing, which paved the way for Fekir to join Real Betis 12 months later for a mere £17m. The failed move to Anfield devastated Fekir, who told The Times: "It was a dark moment. "I saw plenty of things which weren't true." Liverpool were reported to have ended their interest in Fekir due to concerns about the health of his right knee. That notion irked creative whizz, who added: "It was said the knee stopped me going to Liverpool but that wasn't true. "I went to Clairefontaine [France's football centre near Paris], and they...
