WOW UNT Homecoming was..... wait for it.... Ground breaking. #UNTCloutComing' shared another

According to Denton firefighters the cause of the collapse could have been too much jumping. Denton paramedics treated seven people at the scene for minor injuries but didn't take anyone to the hospital by ambulance.

- A jam packed apartment party in Texas ended abruptly Sunday morning, when the floor went crashing into the apartment below.

Videos show water spewing from broken pipes as people climb over beams and plywood to escape.

"The Ridge is a private facility in the City of Denton, and any information regarding the incident would need to come from either the property owner or operator, and the City of Denton PIO", a University of North Texas spokesperson said.

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

University of Nort Texas junior Abiola Busari hosted a homecoming party in this multi-story student apartment building.

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