According to Colonel Luis Carlos Guzmán, national chief of the Fire Brigade, the rescue work was carried out during the early hours of the morning and will continue as a priority until the body of the girl, a waitress at the hotel, the last person to be found, is found.
In this effort, rescuers and the canine brigade are relying on information provided by Saratoga workers about the possible location of the victim.
Guzmán explained that 90% of the premises of the building suffered severe damage, and its structure has little support in several places, for which reason measures are being taken to prevent its collapse, and the search area is being expanded.
For his part, the mayor of Old Havana, Alexis Acosta, said that the area of the hotel continues to be searched and the area of the adjacent Baptist Church is also being analyzed.
Once the victim has been recovered, he said, we will move on to other priority tasks of property recovery, for which a schedule has been established.
He also assured that there is constant communication and attention to the families of the victims.
