Texas University Homecoming Party Ends In Disaster As Floor Collapses

  • One user posted a gif of Cleveland Brown from Family Guy falling from his apartment while in a bathtub a scene that is often revisited on the series as a recurring joke

According to Denton firefighters the cause of the collapse could have been too much jumping.

Only minor injuries were reported, Denton Police said.

Denton police said there was a large party happening in a 3rd floor apartment during the collapse.

The dramatic moment was caught on cell phone video and shows several students falling through a gaping hole in the floor.

Although no one suffered any serious injuries, as many as 50 people were displaced and many of them were students of the University of North Texas.

"I have nowhere to go".

Carley Carroll, who lives in the apartment below, was not home when the ceiling fell. "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".

A party in Denton turned into terror and chaos when the third floor at a student housing complex collapsed, the CBS affiliate in Dallas/Ft. "And it's one of those things that you fear would happen, but you don't think it's actually going to happen", said Carroll.

Until the building and its sprinkler system are repaired, the utilities will remain shut off, Denton Fire Department Battalion Chief Brian Glenn said.

Police estimate there were 100 people at the party.

Carroll told the station she's called the cops on her upstairs neighbors' parties before.

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

Students affected by this say both the apartment management and the university have helped secure places for them to stay, mostly in hotels or dorms and food.
