Floor Collapses at Denton Apartment Complex

Floor Collapses at Denton Apartment Complex

Several videos capturing the moment a floor collapsed as students danced and celebrated inside a northern Texas apartment building, is raising awareness about party safety.

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

No word if "structural issues" at The Ridge Apartments on Colorado Blvd. are actually to blame. They were at the police department reporting the party.

Fox 4 reports the gathering was full of students from the University of North Texas who were dancing late into the evening.

Carly Carroll, who lives in the apartment right below were the party occurred, said she just moved in three months ago.

Exactly four minutes after Castro and one of her roomates arrived at the police department, the fire department received an alert that fire alarms were going off at the apartments, according to time logs provided by the police department.

Kevin Spacey accused in incident involving former Boston TV anchor relative
She said the fall-out from the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct scandal had emboldened her to speak up against Spacey. Spacey apologized in an October 29 tweet - his last - but also said he had no memory of the alleged encounter.


Investigators say the collapse was likely caused by too much jumping. Glenn said a few students sustained minor injuries.

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

Out of about 40 people he said he helped, no one said thanks. Carroll says that's typical; she's called the cops on the party-goers before.

The Denton fire marshal said there was a party and people at the party were jumping up and down when the floor collapsed onto the second floor.

Denton Police are working to confirm the previous noise complaints. "Once they get that, they should be able to make some repairs to the electric and water and get them turned back on to at least the nine units", he said, referring to those not directly affected by the collapse.
