“Who would have thought that something like this would happen at 1:30 in your life? In old age I will see such terrible things,” Gorfinkel said.
Gorfinkel said she was in her pajamas the night the building collapsed when she went to see what happened. She put on the house coat and slowly walk down to the garage when her neighbor provided much-needed help
“They pushed me away and we went into the water,” Gorfinkel said. “And then they pushed me, pushed me, pushed me. There was a lot of rubbish and we saw a hole visible outside. they push me they picked me up i see the sky I know I will be safe.”;
“(We) try to help her leave as soon as possible. because if you don’t leave We are not going to leave,” Willis said.
Willis and his father helped Gorfinkel over the collapsing wall in the garage. Then go up to the pool deck for safety.
“When we got to that matter We all started to breathe a sigh of relief,” he said. “You felt safe. When you see the beach and are on the sand You count your blessings.”
Gorfinkel said she remembered the entire encounter and was very grateful for the help from the neighbors. But she regrets what she left behind.
“My heart is broken,” she said. “Let me tell you that I have (a) friends on the third floor with her husband. I don’t see them anymore.”
“My wedding photos … my mother’s wedding photos … my children’s wedding photos. Do you know how many albums I have? Everything is in there.”
