A man whose grandparents are unaccounted for following the Florida building collapse says he has been getting bombarded with eerie and mysterious calls from the landline inside their sunken condo, according to a report.
Jake Samuelson told local outlet WBLG that he has received at least 16 calls from the number of his missing grandparents, Arnie and Myriam Notkin.
When he answered the phone, he heard nothing but static each time, the report said.
“We are trying to rationalize what is happening here, we are trying to get answers,” Samuelson told the TV station.
He said the first call came on Thursday night, hours after the early-morning disaster that has left at least five people dead and dozens unaccounted for.
“We were all sitting there in the living room, my whole family, Diane, my mother, and we were just shocked,” Samuelson told the outlet. “We kind of thought nothing of it because we answered, and it was static.”
His grandparents, both in their 80s, live in apartment 302 in the Champlain Towers South, and their landline phone usually sits right next to their bed, according to the report.
