A family who lost everything in the Surfside condo collapse last month received a small miracle when their cat was found alive.
The Gonzalez family has suffered mixed fortune from the collapse: Angela and her daughter Deven survived a fall from their ninth-floor apartment, recovering from their injuries at Jackson Memorial Hospital. However, Edgar Gonzalez, the father, has been missing since the June 24 collapse.

The family cat, Binx, had also remained missing as workers cleared the site looking for any signs of life.
Rescue efforts had faced considerable hurdles, with delays due to a fire that started deep in the rubble, repeated weather delays, and even the demolition of the remaining structure.
After all that, Binx finally turned up – alive – wandering around the collapse site!

“In the middle of this sadness, we were hoping for good news either for any survivors or any pet,” a friend of the family said. “As you may know, pets are family, and this is a miracle.”
