Denton apartment floor collapses, 50 residents displaced

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

Insane video shows a third floor apartment in Denton caving in Saturday night.

The apartment complex in Denton, Texas is sealed off after a floor collapsed at a college party.

Most of the residents at the Ridge Apartments are OK.

The astonishing accident took place at around 1.40am in a students-only housing complex in the city of Denton in Texas.

A raucous homecoming party ended when an apartment floor caved in, sending at least 30 people crashing into the unit below Saturday.

Denton Police say they are working to confirm the previous noise complaints, but said those kinds of calls are low priority and people have usually left the party by the time police arrive.

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

Only minor injuries were reported, as cell phone videos show water spewing from broken pipes while people climb over beams and plywood to escape.

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

"They have parties quite a bit, nearly every weekend", Carley Carroll told NewsFix. Moments before the collapse, two of the tenants drove to the police department to report the loud party that shook their home.

"People gotta grab their wallets, keys, back packs because we have school tomorrow", said Trent Blackburn.

Carroll and her three roommates say they have nowhere to go, and are displaced along with fifty other residents.

The Ridge at North Texas is a student- only apartment complex, owned privately and not by UNT.

Another email to tenants said the matter is being investigated by authorities and a structural engineer will be evaluating the building.
