Apartment floor collapses during student party

Apartment floor collapses during student party

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.

Officials said no major injuries were reported, but a few people were treated for minor injuries on the scene, according to NBC 5.

The residents in the apartment below had just left minutes before, in order to make a noise complaint about the party with the Denton Police Department.

A video shows the moments after the floor of a Texas apartment collapsed.

"I have nowhere to go".

The student who lived in the second-story apartment was not at home at the time of the collapse.

Six people were hurt when the floor of a third-floor apartment collapsed during a homecoming party at a complex in Texas, authorities said. "That's life threatening. If we were in our living room, we wouldn't have made it out because by what we've seen, it's just completely gone".

Another student, Davion Keys, said the water pipes busted when the floor collapsed. A general manager at the complex told residents in an email that a structural engineer will evaluate the building and that those who were displaced would be reimbursed for lodging expenses, the Denton Record-Chronicle reports.

Carroll and her roommates are not the only ones affected. Carroll says that's typical; she's called the cops on the party-goers before.

"Everybody was screaming and in total shock they didn't know what do", said Day Oyenuga, the party's DJ.

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.
