Floor collapses during homecoming party

Floor collapses during homecoming party

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

.

The floor of an apartment complex in Denton, Texas, collapsed early Sunday morning, after a large group of party-goers were jumping forcefully.

The building was evacuated and only minor injuries were reported.

The dramatic moment was caught on cell phone video and shows several students falling through a gaping hole in the floor.

Carly Carroll, an apartment resident told CBS affiliate WKRG-TV: "Its worse than you could possibly imagine because the sprinklers were on for two hours so not only was all of our stuff crushed, but its completely soaked with water".

At least 48 residents are displaced until the apartment management can get a structural engineer and a construction crew to certify the building is safe, Lahart said.

"I have nowhere to go".

Carroll and her three roommates, all North Texas sophomores, were not home at the time.

She said: "It's just one of those, it's like it happened".

Police estimate there were 100 people at the party.

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

"We've called and said, 'It looks like the ceiling is going to cave in, ' so I feel like with us saying that, there could've been more that was done", she said.

Denton Police are working to confirm the previous noise complaints.

This incident was upgraded to a possible mass casualty incident.

"(We are) in the process of making alternate housing arrangements for those students, a local university offered help as well to provide alternate arrangements", a complex spokesman said. They are asking people not to donate to those fundraisers.
