  1. With one crane and just a few dozen people working there expect to be finished in 6 months

    Truly disturbing to watch the paste at which the rescue is going and lack of effort that they are putting in to save the people under the rubble

  2. y2r.
    If you are not happy with the paste (pace), why don’t you volunteer and bring some of your own paste.
    Do you realize these volunteers who are working day and night, are actually endangering their lives every second they are there ,because there is a very good chance the rest of the building will come tumbling down on them.
    Very easy to sit in your comfortable bunker in boro park or flatbush scrolling the internet while munching chips, and criticizing those who are there working 18 hours straight to try and save lives, plus putting their own lives in danger.

  3. y2r, There are over 200 people involved working in shifts. They have to move carefully as not to endanger those possibly trapped of themselves. The remaining building can collapse or the pile of rubble can shift. This effort is very similar to the effort at the World Trade Center where respect for human remains means that every load of debris is examined. They can’t use steam shovels of bulldozers.
