MIAMI - Authorities have found the body of a fourth victim in the rubble of a parking garage that partially collapsed last week at a Florida college.

Miami-Dade County police said Monday the man's body is deep in the unstable rubble and may take several days to remove.

Investigators believe the body is 53-year-old electrician Robert Budhoo. They say positive identification can't be done until the body is removed.

Three other workers were killed when part of the five-story garage collapsed at Miami Dade College's west campus. No students were injured.

The garage was still under construction and not open. Authorities have not yet determined what caused the collapse.

The campus is closed and students are attending classes at temporary locations.
