College party turns to terror after floor collapses

The third floor at a student apartment complex in Denton collapsed during a party

A party came to an abrupt end Sunday morning in Texas after the floor full of party-goers collapsed underneath them into the apartment below.

The apartment complex in Denton, Texas is sealed off after a floor collapsed at a college party. About 50 residents haven't been able to return to their apartmentst.

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

Denton police say all occupants of the apartment were successfully evacuated, and only minor injuries were reported.

Emergency crews responded to the student-only apartment complex located outside Dallas, but no one was taken to hospital, according to local media.

Many who were at the party could be seen crawling over beams and plywood after the collapse. Carroll and her three roommates, all sophomores at the University of North Texas, were not home at the time.

They don't believe the suspect knew the victims and Potts said he didn't know yet where the victims were from. When the owner of the property confronted him, the suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim.

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

Police told FOX 4 they believe there was 100 people at the party.

Out of about 40 people he said he helped, no one said thanks.

Glenn says at least 30 people were in the apartment when the floor gave way, although some witnesses and Twitter video of the incident show more people. In the meantime, she said, the complex will reimburse affected residents who want to stay at the nearby Best Western.

Denton police tell NBC 5 that they never received any 911 calls to complain about the noise before the collapse.

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