8:00 am
couple days now and no new victims have been pulled from the rubble. >> reporter: exactly, >> reporter: exactly, whit pup see their anguish, fear, their concern is written all over their faces. just a few moments ago when governor desantis was making his way down this row here i saw a woman i had met thursday night looking for her son-in-law. her son-in-law was on the fourth floor of that tower with his cousins and they haven't heard from him since. she's devastated. her daughter is devastated and to t lachbd ive to what the govr had to say. these families are looking for any bit of information they can get. so many families that don't know. they are assuming, holding on to hope. they're hoping for a miracle but they just don't know.
8:01 am
you can see it's raining here in seaside and weather happenered the conditions. the search and rescue teams face sewed many challenges in the last couple of days. you heard from officials. they said they will continue to work. they are trying to find people. they are trying to get that information to those families. they've got crews working in 12-hour shifts, and it is an around around-the-clock situation. >> 159 people unaccounted for. i want to turn to our tom van nesn, former commissioner. tom, talking before coming on the air about the search and rescue effort. you were there 9/11. many haven't seen a building collapse like this in the united states since then. what did you make of what officials are talking about in continuing the searchnd rescue
8:02 am
efforts two and a half days later? >> well, i certainly can understand what they're trying to do. they're holding out, even though there's less and less hope as the hours go by. they're holding out, saying that there's no hope. the last thing they wanted to do i'm sure, bring in that heavy crane that you have on the screen now. once you start moving all of that stuff like that, you get too much vibration, too much movement, and you really lessen a chance of finding anybody in that area. but they had to do that because of the fire. so everything they do to compensate for one problem is a greater problem in another area. the smoke, the density, the water coming down. the time going by. it's just such a difficult operation. it's heavy. it's compactness. i'm watching a guy before hitting concrete with a sledgehammer. it's just such -- we build our buildings very well.
8:03 am
these are good buildings, and when they come down there's a lot of heavy, heavy material that is difficult to move. you just hope that there's somebody under hon. go by itpossib. >> and tom, seeing picture of the search and rescue crews. they built a slide, this chute, literally, brick by brick, one cinder block at a time, picking them up, putting it on the chute to access. they're looking for void space where is perhaps somebody could survive. pockets where there could be some air to breathe, but, tom, give perspective on this. again, going back to 9/11, how long after that disaster, that catastrophe, the attack there, were survivors actually being >> had n s tfirst 24 hours. we only found some five on the
8:04 am
staircase, a port authority person trapped. after 24 hours, none. experts told us we would not find survivors but we could not listen to them. the mayor did not want to put that word out. we just didn't walk to give, take away any hope. firefighters and relatives just needed that hope. so we went on for weeks, but the compression, you know -- we had -- our weight was really more dense than this. we had 110 stories come down. not 12. 14 acres. really, a bigger, heavier, much more horrible event that there was no hope, really, from the beginning, but we just didn't want to believe that. i think there has been hope here for the last couple of days, and i just, you know, as time goes by you become more skeptical that they will find somebody, but these guys are doing a great job. >> sure are.
8:05 am
they're very brave. we've seen images of them going into he rubble underneath some of these pockets, waist-deep in water trying to get to any possible survivsurvivors. they're not giving up because they believe there could still be void space where is somebody could survive. we'll stay on top ofs they on abc news. our coverage continues on "abc news live" and and a full update tonight. i'm whit johnson, have a good day. >> announcer: this has been a special report from abc news. a. others are still missing. i live just 15 minutes away in a building that just underwent its 40-year recertification process, so this is, of course, something i thought about as i went to sleep, just have to ll yohawh happened is incredibly rare. buildings just shouldn't fall down, guys.
