Floor collapses at apartment party in Denton; only minor injuries reported

A STUDENT party got so rowdy that the floor COLLAPSED under more than 100 terrified revellers.

Carley Carroll, a second-year student who lives directly below the unit where the party was being held, says she wasn't home when the accident happened, but says she lost everything.

No word if "structural issues" at The Ridge Apartments on Colorado Blvd. are actually to blame.

The incident was caught on video from multiple angles from the apartment near the University of North Texas in Denton, near Dallas.

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.

Officials also believe the collapse happened because there was too much jumping during the party.

She said in her letter that Khilji, who was a barbarian, desired Padmavati and that is why he destroyed Chittor. The rumours were fuelled further by Ranveer's cryptic tweet that said "stung by a bee for the first time".

About 50 residents at the complex were displaced and six people were treated at the scene for minor injuries, according to KDFW. "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".

"(We are) in the process of making alternate housing arrangements for those students, a local university offered help as well to provide alternate arrangements", a complex spokesman said.

Carroll told the station she's called the cops on her upstairs neighbors' parties before. Police say those type of calls are low priority in nature and people have usually left the party by the time officers arrive.

The complex is helping those affected.

The Ridge at North Texas lists itself online as "a student-only community located in Denton, Texas, which serves the students of the University of North Texas, Texas Woman's University, and North Central Texas College".
