Texas College Apartment Party Causes Floor to Collapse

Jumping partygoers cause floor to collapse at Denton student apartments, authorities say

Several videos capturing the moment a floor collapsed as students danced and celebrated inside a northern Texas apartment building, is raising awareness about party safety. But the floor gave way under the weight of the dozens of students gathered at the party.

Most of the residents at the Ridge Apartments are OK.

Abioloa Busari, a junior at University of North Texas hosted the homecoming party and lives in the unit that collapsed.

Police say those hurt only suffered minor injuries.

Emergency crews responded to the student-only apartment complex located outside Dallas, but no one was taken to hospital, according to local media. "We haven't even lived here three months, and everything we have is gone and destroyed".

"TVs, computers, just everything".

Only minor injuries were reported, as cell phone videos show water spewing from broken pipes while people climb over beams and plywood to escape.

Carroll says it isn't the first time she's called the cops on the apartment above.

"The Ridge is a private facility in the City of Denton, and any information regarding the incident would need to come from either the property owner or operator, and the City of Denton PIO", a University of North Texas spokesperson said, reported Fox 4. They were at the police department reporting the party.

Denton police tell NBC 5 that they never received any 911 calls to complain about the noise before the collapse.

An investigation into the structural failing is now underway, while apartment management and the university have worked to help secure housing in dorms or hotels for affected students in the building.
