The trio drove to the site and was spotted bringing supplies to first responders on the scene.

According to ABC News, a report came in around 1:30am the Champlain Towers South condominium had collapsed. A Miami-Dade County official told ABC at least three people have been confirmed dead and "as many as 99 are unaccounted for." A confirmed 35 residents had been rescued from the rubble at the time ABC reported the story.

Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett told the press the building was built in the 1980s and undergoing roof work.

The Heat issued a statement regarding the building collapse on their Twitter account:

Chelena Goldman grew up on a street where the boys played street hockey and yelling at baseball and football over the radio was a standard -- making life as a sports geek the perfect fit. She believes in dominance on the blue line, good red wine, and the theory that you can never be too overdressed for any occasion. You can find her gabbing away on Twitter at @ChelenaGoldman.
