This Week in South Florida: Joseph Zahralban

It was some of the most difficult work every for those people who do profoundly difficult work for a living, recovering those who were lost in a matter of minutes as Surfside's Champlain Towers South collapsed last month.

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – It was some of the most difficult work every for those people who do profoundly difficult work for a living, recovering those who were lost in a matter of minutes as Surfside’s Champlain Towers South collapsed last month.

After a month of around the clock digging, the work at the site officially ended last week.

The workers who spent those days emotionally and physically entrenched were saluted by a grateful community as they returned to hug their own families.

Miami Fire Chief Joseph Zahralban joined This Week in South Florida host Glenna Milberg, and their conversation can be seen at the top of this page.
