The video shows two wings of the 12-story skyscraper falling from the sky around 1:30 a.m. on Thursday without warning.

It was still going on Thursday night, and authorities said rescuers using sonar equipment had recorded popping noises they hoped were signs of life.

At least three people have died and 99 remained missing for 24 hours after the collapse. More than three dozen people were saved, including a woman whose leg had to be amputated.
“Buildings like this don’t fall in America,” Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Thursday night. “This is a third world phenomenon and it’s shocking.”
