A construction crew dug through an underwater pile of rubble in Houston for more than two hours Thursday, digging through a collapsed home and collecting more than a dozen items.
The Houston Chronicle reported that the team, called the Houston Search and Rescue team, was dispatched to the property on the 900 block of North Lamar Street, which was partially submerged and had collapsed into a riverbed.
The team dug up two abandoned cars, two containers of cement, a box of food and a box labeled “dirt” in the yard, the newspaper reported.
They then placed the items in a bag, the paper reported.
The search and rescue team, which included the city’s Fire Rescue Bureau, began searching for the people inside the home, but were unable to find them.
The city reported that no one was inside the house, and that the search was suspended.
