The Bonnefoys were residing in unit 1001 on the 10th floor of Champlain Towers South, the Surfside building that collapsed. The Bonnefoys had been spending little time in the apartment, but the pandemic had kept them in for a longer time, according to relatives..

Bonnefoy, a lawyer, is the second cousin of former Chilean President and High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet, and both he and his wife worked for international organizations, the Associated Press reported.
