UNT students displaced after floor of apartment complex collapses during party

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

Damage visible from the outside after the floor collapsed at a North Texas apartment complex during a party.

The party was held on the third floor of the complex, crashing into the floor below.

No word if "structural issues" at The Ridge Apartments on Colorado Blvd. are actually to blame.

About 50 people were displaced following the incident.

No serious injuries were reported, but six people suffered minor injuries after the floor gave way, sending partygoers at The Ridge at North Texas apartment complex to the second-floor apartment below, the Denton Record-Chronicle reports.

Carroll says it isn't the first time she's called the cops on the apartment above. Fort Worth Star-Telegram said the call was upgraded to a potential mass casualty incident once they arrived at the scene and additional support from other fire rescue units and Denton police was called for.




Denton firefighters believe the cause of the collapse was too much jumping. "We haven't even lived here three months, and everything we have is gone and destroyed".

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

The videos capture the moment the floor caved in and the group of dancing and jumping revelers crashed from the third floor into the apartment below. "Once they get that, they should be able to make some repairs to the electric and water and get them turned back on to at least the nine units", he said, referring to those not directly affected by the collapse.

"The university is here to help any of our students who may have been impacted".

"We talked with the property owner - the fire marshal met with one of their building contractors yesterday".
