Denton apartment floor collapses, 50 residents displaced

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

Investigators say the collapse was likely caused by too much jumping.

The harrowing scene at The Ridge at North Texas, near the University of North Texas in Denton, was captured on video from multiple angles and posted to social media.

"A medical triage was set up, but only minor injuries were reported", Denton Fire Marshal Brad Lahart said in a statement released Sunday.

"I have nowhere to go". "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".

The party, off campus from the University of North Texas, spiraled out of control, said Abiola Busari, who hosted the event and was one of more than 30 people who fell through the floor when it collapsed around 2 a.m., according to WFAA.

Carroll and her roommates weren't in the apartment at the time of the collapse. They were at the police department reporting the party. Moments before the collapse, two of the tenants drove to the police department to report the loud party that shook their home.

Police estimate there were 100 people at the party.

"They have parties quite a bit, nearly every weekend", Carley Carroll told NewsFix.

"(We are) in the process of making alternate housing arrangements for those students, a local university offered help as well to provide alternate arrangements", a complex spokesman said.

The complex is helping those affected. About 50 residents haven't been able to return to their apartmentst.

Denton Police told FOX 4 they have received previous noise complaints, but people have mostly left the party by the time officers arrive.
