Miami pro players help out their community after building collapse

Miami, FL- Dolphins wide receiver Jayden Waddle who recently got drafted to the team and linebacker Jerome Baker helped out their community after a building collapsed on Thursday.

A high-rise condominium in Surfside, Florida, collapsed around 1:30 a.m. on Thursday morning. By Friday morning, Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava said that they were looking for 159 people, who are missing in the incident. As of right now, it has been reported that four people have been killed.

Waddle and baker helped deliver water to the unification center for families of the area Friday afternoon. They were seen handing out water to the victims. They were not the only pro players to help out in the community, as Miami Heat's shooting guard Tyler Herro and a pair of assistant coaches showed up to help.

"This is 12 miles from our arena," said Steve Stowe, Vice President of Heat. "We heard about it and responded immediately to find a way to help."

The Marlin’s sent three vans full of water and food and the Dolphin’s Food Relief Program partnered with SEED Miami showing their love and support during the difficult time. They sent meals for first responders, volunteers and victims on Thursday.
