Global Affairs Canada has confirmed that the remains of another Canadian have been pulled from the rubble of a condo collapse in Florida.

In a statement shared with Global News, the federal agency confirmed that the remains of two Canadian citizens have now been found at the site.

The identity of the second deceased person has not been revealed publically. The Canadian whose body was found at the same site earlier this week was identified as 66-year old Ingrid Ainsworth, who died alongside her husband.

The 12-story building, located in the Surfside area of Florida, unexpectedly collapsed on June 24, 2021.

As of Saturday, the death toll had climbed to 86 people in total.

"At least two other Canadian citizens remain unaccounted for," the notice from Global Affairs Canada reads.

"Canada sends its deepest condolences to the families and friends who lost a loved one in the building collapse in Surfside, Florida," a spokesman for the agency said.
