At a press conference about two hours after the demolition, New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell said the operation was a success.

"We know that we are safer now," she said.

The next step, she said, was recovering the bodies of the two workers who were killed in the collapse: 63-year-old Jose Arreola and 36-year-old Quinnyon Wimberly.

"That's what it's about now, recovering our people who are still in that building," Cantrell said.
