A man whose relatives are missing in the deadly Florida condo tower collapse claimed Friday that not enough is being done to find survivors in the 30-foot pile of rubble.

“It looks like an extraction effort — not a rescue effort,” said Mike Silber, 33.

“An extraction effort is after it is determined that they are not alive. Ninety percent of those people are in that rubble.”

Silber said the US Army Corps of Engineers should be in charge of the search.

“They should have 150 to 200 people collectively picking up rocks,” he said.

Silber said his uncle and cousins are among the 159 people still missing following Thursday morning’s collapse at the Champlain Towers South in Surfside, near Miami Beach.

“They’re amazing people and they deserve to be given a real chance to survive,” he said.
