According to spokesman Michael Biesiada, two other employees were hospitalized, however, they are listed as in stable condition.

He added that “our thoughts and prayers are with Mr Brown’s family and with the other affected employees. We really appreciate the work of the first responders, who immediately offered their help.”

One family member said: “Watching the news, just like any other news, but little did I know that my family member, my loving cousin was one of those lying on the ground battling for his life. God knows the hurt I am feeling. Watching news will never be the same again.”

“Death has once again stolen a young soul. It’s so, so sad to see his mom and wife heading to Miami to identify/receive his body. RIP Navaro,” said another friend.
