Texas University Homecoming Party Ends In Disaster As Floor Collapses

While dancing rapper Playboi Carti's What the floor gives way and drops dozens of screaming people to the second floor

Students from the University of North Texas were celebrating homecoming weekend and were at a party on the third floor of a student housing complex. Police estimated about 100 people were packed into the third-floor unit.

Most of the residents at the Ridge Apartments are OK.

The part at the University of North Texas on Saturday night ended with a flood of calls into 9-1-1 reporting that the roof had collapsed.

Exactly four minutes after Castro and one of her roomates arrived at the police department, the fire department received an alert that fire alarms were going off at the apartments, according to time logs provided by the police department.

Investigators said the terrifying collapse was caused by too much jumping. Denton paramedics treated seven people at the scene for minor injuries but didn't take anyone to the hospital by ambulance.

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

Carroll and her three roommates say they have nowhere to go, and are displaced along with fifty other residents. They were at the police department reporting the party.

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

It happened just before 2:00 a.m.at The Ridge at North Texas apartments located near Highway 288.

Denton Police are working to confirm the previous noise complaints.

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.

Structural engineers will check the building.
