The Ridge at North Texas lists itself online as "a student-only community located in Denton, Texas, which serves the students of the University of North Texas, Texas Woman's University, and North Central Texas College".

The Denton fire marshal said there was a party and people at the party were jumping up and down when the floor collapsed onto the second floor.

Damage visible from the outside after the floor collapsed at a North Texas apartment complex during a party.

A party turned into terror and chaos when the third floor of a student housing complex collapsed in Texas, CBS Dallas-Fort Worth reports.

"I notify everybody in advance", Busari said. "That's life threatening. If we were in our living room, we wouldn't have made it out because by what we've seen, it's just completely gone". They were at the police department reporting the party. Fifty other residents are also displaced. Out of about 40 people he said he helped, no one said thanks.

Carroll says she and her roommates have complained about the loud and large parties over the past three months."This happens nearly every weekend", she said. Police say those type of calls are low priority in nature and people have usually left the party by the time officers arrive. There is now an investigation into the structural failing.

The collapse prompted the building's sprinklers to go off, so the belongings of many students who lived there are now ruined.

Carroll says fake fundraising pages have been set up by people pretending to be her and her roommates, hoping to take advantage of their situation.
