30 people hurt after floor collapse in Clemson

Dozens of people were injured when the floor of a U.S. building collapsed during a house party, dropping dozens of revellers into the basement. Police say the building's first floor collapsed into the basement while the party-goers were dancing. "Then I wake up, because I blacked out, and there [were] girls everywhere with blood all over their face".

University president Jim Clements tweeted that the "entire student support system will be available for any student impacted", and thanked the emergency services for their help.

About 30 people were taken to local hospitals after the center of the floor caved in at the clubhouse near the SC university.

As Hot New Hip Hop points out, during a Homecoming party at Clemson University this past Saturday, "Faneto" dropped and the crowd went nuts.

Property manager Tal Slann said the floor collapse occurred in a common area within the complex, CNN reported. Shortly thereafter, as the whole room jumped up and down, the clubhouse floor collapsed, injuring 30.

A shocking video of the incident was taken and shared online, which showed the moment in which the ground gave out beneath the partygoers. Police told the outlet that none of the injuries were life threatening.

Police said the investigation is ongoing. This party resulted in a collapse of the floor structure in front of the fireplace at the clubhouse.

The college homecoming party in SC that ended catastrophically when the floor collapsed early Sunday morning was thrown by a Black fraternity, according to reports.

"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.
