30 injured when floor collapses at college party

Thirty people were hurt after a floor collapsed during a house party early Sunday. Clemson Police Chief Jimmy Dixon says there were no life-threatening injuries.

Partygoers at the Woodlands apartment complex were celebrating Clemson University's emphatic 41-7 football victory over North Carolina State on homecoming weekend when the incident occurred shortly after 12:30 a.m. EDT.

'It was a lot to take in'.

People fell through the collapsed floor into the building's basement, Slann said.

The 30 people were transported to area hospitals after officials said Clemson University Fire set up a triage at the scene. "The beat was about to drop and literally the whole floor collapsed", she told the news outlet. I stood up, and everyone was trying to climb out.

Property manager Tal Slann said the floor collapse occurred in a common area within the complex, CNN reported. People were under other people.

As a crowded group of Clemson University students and local residents danced and jumped around at an apartment clubhouse, Jeremy Tester felt something odd beneath his feet. He said he could not comment on whether there was a limit on the number of people who were supposed to use the clubhouse at one time. "I can tell you there was a party".

"We're continuing to gather information, and are encouraged by the initial reports of no life-threatening injuries", Clemson University said in a statement to ABC.
