    Massive college student party in Texas causes floor of apartment to collapse

    Apartment floor collapses during college party
    Minor injuries reported after students fall through third floor, firefighters say too many people jumping at one time caused the collapse at the University of Texas.

    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.

    The harrowing scene at The Ridge at North Texas, near the University of North Texas in Denton, was captured on video from multiple angles and posted to social media.

    Many who were at the party could be seen crawling over beams and plywood after the collapse.

    All occupants were successfully evacuated and only minor injuries were reported.

    Only minor injuries were reported, Denton Police said.

    “I have nowhere to go. Everything I own is in there,” Carley Carroll, who lived in the second-floor apartment below the party, told FOX 4 News. “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."

    Carroll and her three roommates, all North Texas sophomores, were not home at the time. Instead, they were at the Denton Police Department making a noise complaint about the party.

    Police told FOX 4 they believe there was 100 people at the party.

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

    "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.

    The floor collapse also caused water to spew from broken pipes into other apartments. The damage has affected 50 other residents at the complex.

    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."

    "A vast choice of amenities and its friendly staff create a worry-free environment that allows residents to focus on the most important thing - being a successful college student," according to the complex website.

    Denton Police told FOX 4 they have received previous noise complaints, but people have mostly left the party by the time officers arrive.

    Students affected by the collapse said the apartment management company and university have secured places for them to stay, mostly in hotels or dorms.

    Warning: There is graphic language in the video above.

    Several dramatic videos of the floor of a Texas apartment collapsing under the weight of a homecoming party have gone viral.

    Students at the University of North Texas in Denton gathered at a third-floor apartment at The Ridge complex to celebrate homecoming, but the festivities quickly turned dramatic as the floor of the apartment gave way under the weight of the dozens of students gathered at the party around 1:45 a.m.

    UNT students DeeJay Priestly, 22, and Davion Keys, 22, were among the party-goers. Priestly recalled the moment he saw Keys fall through the floor.

    "I was right next to the floor where it collapsed," Priestly told Chron.com during a phone interview. "My partner was actually one of the ones who fell down and I saw him fall through the roof. One moment he was there, then he wasn't."

    Keys, who walked away from the accident with minor cuts on his elbows, told Chron.com, "I was lucky to have no injuries, but I fell on numerous people. Immediately the water pipes were busted and water was coming from all over the place. I remember being in midair falling and I crawled my way to flat ground and went out the back window."

    The pair, who heard about the party through social media and didn't even know the homeowners, were able to reconnect with each other after the emergency authorities came to the scene.

    Dozens of other videos shared on social media shows the moment the floor gave in due to the weight of the party-goers.

    Authorities told Fox 4 that six people were treated at the scene, but no one was taken to the hospital. Due to the extensive flooding that was caused by the pipes breaking as the floor fell down, about 50 residents will be displaced, the station reported.

    The residents of the apartment the floor fell into were not home at the time of the incident, but they have started a GoFundMe account to raise money to replace the furniture and personal items that were destroyed in the accident.

    According to the GoFundMe account, the girls who lived in the apartment reported their neighbor's parties "multiple times" and they "feared that the ceiling wouldn't hold up."

    The Chron.com team has reached out to the second-floor residents for comment, but haven't heard back as of publication. When we do, we will update this story.
