Apartment floor collapses under college students during wild homecoming party

Several people suffered minor injuries when the third floor of a Denton apartment building collapsed on Saturday.

Carly Carroll, an apartment resident told CBS affiliate WKRG-TV: "Its worse than you could possibly imagine because the sprinklers were on for two hours so not only was all of our stuff crushed, but its completely soaked with water".

Denton Fire Captain Brian Glenn says the collapse likely broke pipes and plumbing and investigators were out Sunday afternoon analyzing the damage.

Abioloa Busari, a junior at University of North Texas hosted the homecoming party and lives in the unit that collapsed.

Well, Busari is now trying to right his wrongs by setting up a GoFundMe account for Carley and her three roommates. At least six people had injuries, Denton police said, and no one had to be transported by ambulance.


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.

Video posted to social media shows a crowd of people jumping up and down in the third-floor apartment before the floor collapsed, tumbling into the second-floor unit. The fire department says it will be up to the city to determine if there were any code violations. "Everything is gone", said Carroll.

Managers of the Ridge at North Texas apartment complex told reporters they relocating about 50 residents as a result of the incident.

Denton Police are working to confirm the previous noise complaints.

"In the process of making alternate housing arrangements for those students, a local university offered help as well to provide alternate arrangements".
