When it comes to partying at North Texas University, the students go HAM. A crazy turn of events took place during a homecoming party held in an off-campus apartment. Things got so ruckus with that many people in the complex, the apartment floor collapsed. Luckily, no one was seriously injured.
“I was right next to the floor when it collapsed,” student DeeJay Priestly told the Houston Chronicle. “My partner was actually one of the ones who fell down and I saw him fall through the roof. One moment he was there, then he wasn’t.”
Another student, Davion Keys, said the water pipes busted when the floor collapsed.
One video posted on Twitter shows a girl trying to climb over rubble to get to safety as water gushes from the pipes.
“I was lucky to have no injuries,” Keys said. “But I fell on numerous people. … I remember being in midair falling and I crawled my way to flat ground and went out the back window.”
According to Fox 4, 50 residents in the building will be displaced because of the extensive flooding.
One woman named Carley Carroll created a GoFundMe account for her sister, who lived in the apartment underneath where the party was taking place.
“My sister received a housing scholarship and was working to pay for her things on her own. With no renters insurance, she is now faced with replacing all her belongings,” Carroll wrote. “Clothing, appliances, electronics and school work/books and photos are just a few of the things that she will need to start over.”
