Floor Collapses at Denton Apartment Complex

While dancing rapper Playboi Carti's What the floor gives way and drops dozens of screaming people to the second floor

Students at a Texas college brought a whole new meaning to bringing down the house when the floor collapsed during a party over the weekend. Busari says he fell through the floor himself, and that the party spiraled out of control when people he didn't know suddenly appeared.

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".

At least 48 residents of the complex have been displaced due to the incident.

"It was just way too many people in my apartment, I have no idea who these people were", said Abiola Busari, who threw the party in his apartment. Fort Worth Star-Telegram said the call was upgraded to a potential mass casualty incident once they arrived at the scene and additional support from other fire rescue units and Denton police was called for.

Only minor injuries were reported, as cell phone videos show water spewing from broken pipes while people climb over beams and plywood to escape. They were at the police department reporting the party.

Carley Carroll is a UNT sophomore who lives on the second floor directly below the unit that collapsed.

"People gotta grab their wallets, keys, back packs because we have school tomorrow", said Trent Blackburn.

The complex is helping those affected.

Carroll told the station she's called the cops on her upstairs neighbors' parties before. They're waiting to have structural engineers come in to verify that there's no structural damage that would cause a further building collapse.
