College party turns to terror after floor collapses

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

Damage visible from the outside after the floor collapsed at a North Texas apartment complex during a party. Police estimated about 100 people were packed into the third-floor unit.

Carly Carroll, an apartment resident told CBS affiliate WKRG-TV: "Its worse than you could possibly imagine because the sprinklers were on for two hours so not only was all of our stuff crushed, but its completely soaked with water".

The residents in the apartment below had just left minutes before, in order to make a noise complaint about the party with the Denton Police Department.

Abioloa Busari, a junior at University of North Texas hosted the homecoming party and lives in the unit that collapsed.

Carroll says it isn't the first time she's called the cops on the apartment above.

Between 10 and 12 people received minor injuries in the collapse, police said.

A raucous party in an over-crowded apartment near a Texas college came to a crashing end early Sunday when the floor collapsed into the apartment below.

"I was right next to the floor where it collapsed", UNT student DeeJay Priestly told the Houston Chronicle.

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

An investigation into the structural failing is now underway, while apartment management and the university have worked to help secure housing in dorms or hotels for affected students in the building.

"We talked with the property owner - the fire marshal met with one of their building contractors yesterday".

Another tenant, Carley Carroll, said large parties have been taking place for the past three months.
