Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro, coaches provide assistance to victims of Surfside building collapse

Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro and assistant coach Chris Quinn were among the members of the Heat organization to visit first responders and deliver supplies near the site of a collapsed high-rise in Surfside, Florida. 

Just 12 miles away from the American Airlines Arena, the condominium building fell early Thursday morning killing one person and leaving several injured. 

Around 100 people are still unaccounted for according to Miami-Dade Police director Alfredo Ramirez III.

"We heard about this in the morning and we heard that first responders have been on the scene here since 2 a.m.," said Steve Stowe, the vice president and executive director of the Miami Heat Charitable Fund.

"So I rounded up Tyler Herro, Chris Quinn and Eric Glass and we loaded up the Kia Heat truck and a couple of other trucks filled with water and snacks and food for the frontliners.

"(It's) kind of like what we do when (hurricane) Irma hit or when any of these tragedies happen, and we went to ground zero and unloaded all of the supplies," Stowe told reporters on the scene. "They spoke to the first responders just to lift their spirits a little bit."
