Apartment floor collapses, sending college students to floor below

WOW UNT Homecoming was..... wait for it.... Ground breaking. #UNTCloutComing' shared another

Police say at least six people suffered minor injuries when part of the floor in a third-story apartment collapsed during a homecoming party at a North Texas complex. He says the party got out of control and there were people in his apartment he didn't know.

"A vast choice of amenities and its friendly staff create a worry-free environment that allows residents to focus on the most important thing - being a successful college student", according to the complex website.

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

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

Officials say they arrived to the collapse and saw partygoers dangling in between floors.

Crystal Palace midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has set his sights on playing for England at next summer's World Cup. He has the physical attributes and can handle the ball.

Denton firefighters believe the cause of the collapse was too much jumping. "That's life threatening. If we were in our living room, we wouldn't have made it out because by what we've seen, it's just completely gone".

"TV's, computers, just everything".

An investigation into the structural failing is now underway, while apartment management and the university have worked to help secure housing in dorms or hotels for affected students in the building. They were at the police department reporting the party.

"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.

"The Ridge is a private facility in the City of Denton, and any information regarding the incident would need to come from either the property owner or operator, and the City of Denton PIO", a University of North Texas spokesperson said, reported Fox 4.
