MIAMI — Authorities say they've have recovered the body of a fourth victim in the Florida college parking garage collapse.
Miami-Dade County police said Thursday that workers have removed the body after locating it earlier this week deep in the unstable debris.
Investigators believe the victim is missing 53-year-old electrician Robert Budhoo. But the medical examiner must conclusively confirm his identity.
Three other workers were killed when part of the five-story garage collapsed last week at Miami Dade College's west campus. No students were injured and the garage was not yet open. Authorities have not yet determined what caused the collapse.
The campus is closed and students are attending classes at temporary locations.
