Apartment floor collapses during student party

Apartment floor collapses during student party

People at the party, many of them UNT students, had to crawl from the empty second floor apartment, back to the third. But the floor gave way under the weight of the dozens of students gathered at the party.

Denton police said about 50 residents will be displaced.

A raucous homecoming party ended when an apartment floor caved in, sending at least 30 people crashing into the unit below Saturday.

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

Investigators say the collapse was likely caused by too much jumping. At least six people had injuries, Denton police said, and no one had to be transported by ambulance. "We haven't even lived here three months, and everything we have is gone and destroyed".

Carroll told the station she's called the cops on her upstairs neighbors' parties before.

All that remains is for the world speed record, which was recorded and verified by Racelogic , to be officially recognised. At the time, it narrowly took the record from the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport , which had recorded a 269.86mph time.

The party's host, Abiola Busari, said he will be staying with some friends. "And it's one of those things that you fear would happen, but you don't think it's actually going to happen", said Carroll.

Officials say they arrived to the collapse and saw partygoers dangling in between floors.

The Ridge at North Texas lists itself online as "a student-only community located in Denton, Texas, which serves the students of the University of North Texas, Texas Woman's University, and North Central Texas College".

Denton Police are working to confirm the previous noise complaints.

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.
