  • The third floor at a student apartment complex in Denton collapsed during a party

Investigators said the terrifying collapse was caused by too much jumping.

Officials said no major injuries were reported, but a few people were treated for minor injuries on the scene, according to NBC 5.

NBC reported that two tenants drove to the police station to report the party - which was so loud the apartment shook.

The videos capture the moment the floor caved in and the group of dancing and jumping revelers crashed from the third floor into the apartment below.

Abiola Busari, a junior at University of North Texas, hosted the homecoming party and lives in the unit that collapsed.

Six people were hurt when the floor of a third-floor apartment collapsed during a homecoming party at a complex in Texas, authorities said.

Broken water pipes could be seen spraying water into the second-floor apartment.

Carroll and her roommates are not the only ones affected.

At least 48 residents of the complex have been displaced due to the incident.

Carroll says it isn't the first time she's called the cops on the apartment above.

Police told FOX 4 they believe there was 100 people at the party.

"We've called and said, 'It looks like the ceiling is going to cave in, ' so I feel like with us saying that, there could've been more that was done", 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.

"(We are) in the process of making alternate housing arrangements for those students, a local university offered help as well to provide alternate arrangements", a complex spokesman said.
