Videos show terrifying moment apartment floor collapses during university party

Meanwhile in Denton #UNT' added one user along with a gif of the classic Disney film The Aristocats that depicts the cats partying so hard they too fall to the floor below

Students from the University of North Texas were celebrating homecoming weekend and were at a party on the third floor of a student housing complex.

Dozens of people are seen crawling on the floor below, while others try to maintain their balance as the third floor crumbles away.

According to Fox 4, 50 residents in the building will be displaced because of the extensive flooding.

Videos posted online show a mass of people falling into the unit below, as water from a burst sprinkler system sprayed across the room.

One woman named Carley Carroll created a GoFundMe account for her sister, who lived in the apartment underneath where the party was taking place.

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

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


Carroll and her three roommates, all North Texas sophomores, were not home at the time.

"TV's, computers, just everything".

"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. Carroll says that's typical; she's called the cops on the party-goers before.

"Everybody was screaming and in total shock they didn't know what do", said Day Oyenuga, the party's DJ.

Denton Police are working to confirm the previous noise complaints.

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

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