30 injured after apartment floor collapses during Clemson party

22 October 2018

Thirty people were injured when the floor of an apartment clubhouse collapsed during a party in Clemson, South Carolina, the city's police department said. Police say the building's first floor collapsed into the basement while the party-goers were dancing. Not a tragedy.... just, super unsettling.

A party at Clemson University took a turn for the worse when the floor of an apartment collapsed under the feet of dozens of college students.

Just thankful no one died in the collapse!

It is unclear if any of those involved suffered "life-threatening injuries" police said.

"I can feel myself falling", attendee Leroy Pearson told local news channel WSPA-TV.

'Everyone was on the floor and people were screaming and there was wood sticking up from the floorboards'.

The property management of the clubhouse told CNN it was built in 2004. I had blood on my sneakers.

It appears as many as 30 people were injured and taken to the hospital for various injuries.

While the Kappas threw the party - one that the historically Black fraternity hosts each year for homecoming, according to a Clemson official - it was doubtful that there were any laws the group violated. I can tell you there was a floor collapse.

Thankfully, none of the injuries are believed to be life threatening. "Nobody was trapped", he said.

The investigation is ongoing. Ambulances rushed to the scene. "From there, the homeowners association will determine how to rebuild the clubhouse to make it safe for all residents".
