Massive college party in Texas causes floor of apartment to collapse

The party, off campus from the University of North Texas, spiraled out of control, said Abiola Busari, who hosted the event and was one of more than 30 people who fell through the floor when it collapsed around 2 a.m., according to WFAA. About 50 residents haven't been able to return to their apartmentst.

A party at the University of North Texas was apparently so lit this weekend that the floor actually collapsed.

Police say those hurt only suffered minor injuries.

"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.

One woman named Carley Carroll created a GoFundMe account for her sister, who lived in the apartment underneath where the party was taking place.

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

Carroll and her three roommates say they have nowhere to go, and are displaced along with fifty other residents.

Denton police tell NBC 5 that they never received any 911 calls to complain about the noise before the collapse.

Only minor injuries were reported, as cell phone videos show water spewing from broken pipes while people climb over beams and plywood to escape. Police say those type of calls are low priority in nature and people have usually left the party by the time officers arrive.

"In the process of making alternate housing arrangements for those students, a local university offered help as well to provide alternate arrangements". They're waiting to have structural engineers come in to verify that there's no structural damage that would cause a further building collapse.
