Dozens Hurt When Floor Collapses During College Party

Thirty people were injured early Sunday when a floor collapsed during a party at an apartment building near Clemson University in South Carolina. The injured were taken to three area hospitals, according to police.

The collapse happened on the first floor of a building at The Woodlands of Clemson, a neighborhood a few minutes from campus, just before 12:30 a.m. The center of the floor at a clubhouse collapsed into the basement, police said.

The clubhouse had been leased for a private party. Videos shot at the scene showed a large party with people jumping around and dancing when the floor suddenly gave out from under them.
