Floor collapses at USA party, dropping revellers into basement and injuring 30

Several people fell through the collapsed floor into the basement of an apartment complex in Clemson South Carolina

Some 30 people were hurt when a floor collapsed early Sunday during a party at an apartment in SC near the campus of Clemson University, news reports say.

Clemson University officials were notified of the incident early Sunday morning and were still gathering information about what happened. Clemson Police Chief Jimmy Dixon says there were no life-threatening injuries.

Some of the attendees broke bones as they fell from the common area into the basement of the off-campus apartment complex. It was built in 2004, Slann said.

"The beat was about to drop and literally the whole floor collapsed", Larissa Stone, a Clemson sophomore, told the Greenville News.

Some 30 people were taken to three area hospitals, ABC news reported.

Video posted to social media shows the moment the floor collapses, sending dozens of party-goers plummeting into the basement. "Everyone was trying to climb out".

"I got five stitches on my leg from a slash, a real bad cut after people grabbed me and jumped over the ones in there", he said. People were under other people. "City police informed Clemson of the incident, and Clemson University EMS and Clemson University Fire coordinated triage and transport of those injured", a Clemson University spokesperson tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. "The clubhouse will be inspected by structural engineers as soon as possible", the email said in part. "We're continuing to gather information, and are encouraged by the initial reports of no life-threatening injuries", the spokesperson adds. From there, the homeowner's association will determine how to rebuild the clubhouse to make it safe for all residents.
