Apartment floor collapses during University of North Texas students' party

A homecoming party at a Texas school turned into terror and chaos when the third floor at a student housing complex collapsed.

Dozens of people are seen crawling on the floor below, while others try to maintain their balance as the third floor crumbles away.

CBS DFW said the nightmare for students began at around 1:45 a.m. Sunday when the Denton Fire Departments responded to a report of a fire alarm.

The floor collapsed under University of North Texas students partying during homecoming.


Carly Carroll, who lives in the apartment right below were the party occurred, said she just moved in three months ago.

About 50 residents at the complex were displaced and six people were treated at the scene for minor injuries, according to KDFW.

Carroll and her roommates weren't in the apartment at the time of the collapse.

A raucous party in an over-crowded apartment near a Texas college came to a crashing end early Sunday when the floor collapsed into the apartment below.

"TV's, computers, just everything", Carroll told WFAA.

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

Denton Police are working to confirm the previous noise complaints. Moments before the collapse, two of the tenants drove to the police department to report the loud party that shook their home.

Students affected by this say both the apartment management and the university have helped secure places for them to stay, mostly in hotels or dorms and food. "The Ridge is also arranging with structural engineers to assess the situation".
