Gabriel Nir, who lived on the first floor of the Champlain Towers South condo building that collapsed, poses for a portrait outside the hotel where he is now staying in Surfside, Fla., on Friday, July 2, 2021. "I saw the building turning into a white dust," he says. "I heard people screaming." "I have to go back. I have to make sure everyone's OK," he said. But he knew it was too late.
