SURFSIDE, Fla. – Dwyane Wade is the latest Miami sports star to pay a visit to the site of the tragic Surfside condo collapse.

The Heat legend spent time at the memorial fence Thursday morning across from the Champlain Towers South site.

He also thanked first responders and addressed a team from the South Florida Urban Search and Rescue before they began their shift.

Wade did not speak to reporters during his visit. He wrote on his Instagram page: “Today was about Uplifting, Praising and Showing up! Our first responders are the real MVPs.”

Current Heat star Bam Adebayo made an emotional visit to the memorial on Friday afternoon. Team captain Udonis Haslem was there June 30, and teammate Tyler Herro and a couple of coaches brought water, food and essentials the morning of the collapse on June 24.
