"People matter, and he was an employee on the eighth floor. Happened very fast," Cantrell said. "As he was talking to me, tears were, of course, in his eyes."

Rescue operation is top priority

Crews had suspended the search for the missing worker, but McConnell said late Sunday morning that teams were re-entering the building to continue the search.

"Until we know different, we will stay in the rescue mode," he said. "Obviously, life safety is always our No. 1 priority."

A crane brought in early Sunday to help stabilize the structure and facilitate response operations was being set up late Sunday morning.

The crane was on a job site in Baton Rouge, and it received a special police escort to New Orleans, McConnell said. It generally takes three hours to erect a crane, which weighs about 110 tons, he said.

Several engineers have also been brought in, while others -- including one traveling from Germany and slated to arrive Sunday evening -- are on their way to the site.

"All residents should continue to stay away from the area, and to heed the street closures and traffic warnings," Cantrell said in a tweet Saturday night. "We appreciate the public's response and support, and we are praying for the victims and their families."
