Rescue teams switch to recovery effort at collapsed Florida building

US rescue teams combing the rubble of a collapsed apartment building in Florida are switching from a search-and-rescue mission to a recovery effort.
 
The decision comes about two weeks after the 12-storey Champlain Towers South fell in the middle of the night.
 
Surfside city officials said fifty-four victims have been found and 86 are still missing.
 
No survivors have been found since the initial collapse, and rescue crews say many victims were found in their beds.
 
News that the rescue mission was ending came during a private meeting on Wednesday between families of the missing and Miami-Dade's Assistant Fire Chief.
 
A grand jury investigation has been launched to try to determine the reason for the June 24 collapse.
