IDF Home Front Command rescue forces on Friday found a fourth body under the ruins of the underground parking garage that collapsed earlier this week in Tel Aviv's Ramat Hahayal neighborhood. This brings the official death toll up to four, with two people still considered missing.

Since the tragedy on Monday, which is believed to have been caused by a construction failure, the forces have been working relentlessly in an attempt to find more survivors. The searches have been focused mainly on three missing persons who are believed to be buried on the bottom floor of the parking garage.

On Thursday, 60-year-old Oleg Yakobov was laid to rest at the Ramle cemetery. His wife, Galina, said, "He was a solid wall for me. I don't know what I'm going to do now."
