MIAMI — A Florida man has died nearly two weeks after being injured when a 13-storey building collapsed.
The Miami Herald reports that 46-year-old project manager Samuel Landis of AlliedBean Demolition was hit by debris as the Marlborough House condominium in Miami Beach came down July 23.
A Miami Beach Police report said Landis suffered a severed leg.
Statements from the building’s owner, Miami Beach Associates, and contractor Winmar Construction said that Landis died Friday afternoon on Aug. 3.
Local police and federal workplace safety officials are still investigating the collapse.
Police have said the building had “a demolition permit, not an implosion permit.” The Marlborough House was to be torn down for construction of a new oceanfront condominium.
