Taipei, Feb. 13 (CNA) The remains of the last unaccounted-for resident of an apartment complex in Tainan that collapsed when a magnitude 6.4 earthquake struck southern Taiwan last week have been found, Tainan Mayor Lai Ching-te (賴清德) said Saturday.
Based on household data and resident reports, the victim was Hsieh Chen-yu (謝鎮宇), head of the building’s management committee, Lai said.
The finding brings the rescue mission to a conclusion, he said at a press conference held at 4:20 p.m. on the progress of the search for the residents of the collapsed Weiguan Jinlong apartment complex in Tainan’s Yongkang District who remained unaccounted for.
Hsieh “might have wanted to wait until everyone else had left,” Lai said. [FULL STORY]
