Another sister, Susan Newcombe, recorded Facebook to bring a genuine ode.
& # 39; There are no words that could ever describe what I feel with the loss of my brother Kurt. May you rest in peace. Always loved, never forgotten, you will always miss, & she wrote.
Newcombe later posted: & # 39; Thanks to everyone for your condolences, prayers, and thoughts. Today was one of the most difficult days for myself and my family, so I ask everyone to hold your family tightly and count them every day that you love them, even if you are angry and always remember that tomorrow has never been promised. & # 39;

& # 39; It was a pretty desperate situation right now, it was a rather desperate struggle for life & # 39 ;, Inspector Lambert told reporters.
& # 39; The stack was pretty unstable, but we had to work very, very fast, and very, very fast, and a significant risk to the rescue teams. & # 39;
