5 victims of FIU bridge collapse identified by police

first_img@GabrielaRose12/Twitter(MIAMI) — Authorities released the names of five of the six people who died from the collapse of a newly installed pedestrian bridge in Miami.Three victims — Rolando Fraga Hernandez, Oswald Gonzalez and Alberto Arias — were found Saturday morning after crews removed two cars from the rubble left at the scene, Miami-Dade police said today.The fourth identified victim, Navarro Brown, died at a hospital, police said.The fifth victim, Alexa Duran, 18, a student at Florida International University, was identified by the Miami-Dade Police Department early Sunday. Her family had already confirmed to reporters on Friday that Duran was among those killed, when the bridge 950-ton bridge collapsed on Thursday afternoon on top of at least eight cars stopped under the span waiting for a red traffic light to change.Alexa’s body was recovered about 5:12 p.m. Saturday when firefighters recovered her gray Toyota 4Runner from the rubble and found her body inside.“Rest In Peace my sweet little sister. Words cannot describe how heavy my heart is,” Alexa’s sister, Dina Duran, wrote in a Instagram police on Saturday. “I would give anything to take your place and all of your pain. I will cherish every memory we’ve made and will miss you every day for the rest of my life. A piece of my heart is with you. Heaven is a better and funnier place with you in it. May your beautiful soul rest with the Angels my love. I will see you again soon.”Rolando Fraga Hernandez’s nephew, Jorge Fraga, had told ABC News on Saturday that he was holding out hope. Before police officially identified Hernandez as being among the dead, Fraga said he called hospitals in the area Saturday searching for his loved one.“I’m trying not to think he isn’t there,” Fraga said.Police said Hernandez’s body was found about 5:40 a.m. Saturday when his gold Jeep Cherokee was removed from the debris.Authorities said at a press conference late Saturday the six people who died from Thursday’s bridge collapse near Florida International University were recovered and they did not expect to find any other victims. Miami-Dade police director Juan Perez said the final two victims were recovered Saturday afternoon.Authorities had previously said the death toll might increase as crews worked to remove more cars trapped under the rubble.“The biggest tonnage carried today was of the families who lost someone,” Perez said.A total of eight cars were trapped under the bridge after it crumbled, including six that were “significantly entangled,” authorities said. Two of those heavily trapped cars were removed Saturday morning and two more were removed later in the day, officials said.Maurice Kemp, deputy mayor of Miami-Dade County, said the primary goal was to remove all victims and cars in a “dignified and respectful manner.”He said crews worked through the night to remove the two cars this morning and will continue the effort until all victims and cars are recovered.FIU had touted the pedestrian bridge as one of the first of its kind, tweeting that it swung into place March 10.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

CUNA GAC: ‘Powerful, motivational tool,’ says Nussle

first_imgThe 2016 Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC) is an exceptional and crucial advocacy opportunity for credit unions, said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle in a new video.“It’s the rare opportunity to meet face to face with policymakers and their staff, and to advocate for the credit union difference and for the people and communities that we represent all across the nation,” Nussle said of the premier credit union conference of the year, set for Feb. 21-25 in Washington.“As a former eight-term congressman, I can tell you–it’s a powerful motivational tool as well.”Headlining the general sessions are award-winning broadcast journalist Ted Koppel and innovation expert and futurist Lisa Bodell, with best-selling author Daniel Pink at the CUNA Councils-sponsored ED (Filene) Talk. continue reading » 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Nussle: Awareness messaging must ‘be a little edgy’

first_img continue reading » The Credit Union Awareness Initiative remains in concept stage, but the final product must boldly explain how credit unions stand apart from other traditional and emerging financial services options, says CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle.And the messaging must break from the traditional messaging credit unions have used in the past.“We did testing with consumers on the street with what we’ve been doing. It didn’t work,” says Nussle, who held a town hall meeting Tuesday to kick off the inaugural CUNA CEO Council Conference in San Diego.“We’re trying to break through a lot of information; a lot of clutter to get consumers’ brain space to think about why a credit union ought to be on their radar,” he continues. “We’ve got to cut through that. We’ve got to be a little edgy.”The initiative aims to create a brand platform that will guide and augment individual credit unions’ marketing messages, Nussle says, and sow the seeds for earning greater market share. 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Binghamton students make ‘cents’ out of classroom lesson through coin drive

first_imgChallenge classes give students more opportunities outside the typical curriculum. “Our eighth grade challenge class, we’re talking about power throughout the year. The second half of the year we’re learning about how we can use our power to help people to make our community better,” said challenge teacher Janelle Farrell. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — Some Binghamton students are making ‘cents’ of a lesson they learned in the classroom. “They’re going to look at the different side effects and the time they spend in chemo and give them things to kind of get them through that process,” said Farrell. “They need to know there’s people there to support them, and there’s people there who will help them,” said student Amiah Brissett. The money will be used to make care kits, filled with things to help patients feel better mentally and physically. “Some people can’t experience their life to the fullest so we think we should try to at least help some people live their life to the fullest,” said student Kaleb Lawrence. “I think in middle school its important especially, for kids to see that it’s not just them, it’s the outside world, and they can make a positive change in their community and have a voice,” said Farrell. “The kids have all experienced someone in their family or somebody in their lives that has had cancer. So we decided to research different areas of cancer, and decided to focus on chemo in particular,” said Farrell.center_img Students came up with the idea of a coin drive, raising money for people with cancer going through treatment. “We try to fix a problem at least once every year and this year it’s the chemo care,” said student Aidan Sheehan. A lesson kids are learning in school, but will stick with them outside of the halls. “We fill it up with things that help with the chemo care, either it could be money or could be equipment or anything,” said Sheehan. Students at East Middle School are also raising money for chemo care kits, through a different fundraiser. The drive runs until March 11, then students plan on delivering the kits to local oncology centers themselves. Students say it’s a small way of making a big difference.last_img read more
