Video: Floor collapses during homecoming party

Meanwhile in Denton #UNT' added one user along with a gif of the classic Disney film The Aristocats that depicts the cats partying so hard they too fall to the floor below

The floor of an apartment complex in Denton, Texas, collapsed early Sunday morning, after a large group of party-goers were jumping forcefully. But the floor gave way under the weight of the dozens of students gathered at the party. About 50 residents haven't been able to return to their apartmentst.

Reports said that the Denton Fire Departments responded to a report of a fire alarm.

"A medical triage was set up, but only minor injuries were reported", Denton Fire Marshal Brad Lahart said in a statement released Sunday.

Investigators said the terrifying collapse was caused by too much jumping. "We haven't even lived here three months, and everything we have is gone and destroyed". Moments before the collapse, two of the tenants drove to the police department to report the loud party that shook their home. The junior at the University of North Texas said he was dancing when the collapse occurred and also fell into the apartment below.

"We're trying to reach a goal of $10,000 to help my neighbor and to help pay for damages", he explained.
