Several people suffered minor injuries when the third floor of a Denton apartment building collapsed on Saturday.

A video shared to Twitter by someone at the party in Denton shows a group of people jumping up and down to loud music moments before the floor gives way. Some people drove themselves to the hospital.

Among those displaced are four young women who live directly beneath the apartment that collapsed.

Carroll told the station she's called the cops on her upstairs neighbors' parties before.

The Ridge at North Texas is a student- only apartment complex, owned privately and not by UNT. They were at the police department reporting the party.

University of North Texas students who were celebrating homecoming in Denton ended the party with a - bang.

Now that the National Football League has loosened the rules on touchdown celebrations, we've seen some really fun, creative ones. In the second half, Christion Jones fumbled a punt return but the Redblacks could only get a field goal, cutting the lead to ten.

"It's just one of those, it's like it happened". Soon, multiple frantic calls flooded 911 saying a roof had collapsed.

Carroll said she's even joked about something like this happening, "When it actually did, and I saw the video, it was sickening to see".

Denton Police told FOX 4 they have received previous noise complaints, but people have mostly left the party by the time officers arrive.

CBS DFW said the nightmare for students began at around 1:45 a.m. Sunday when the Denton Fire Departments responded to a report of a fire alarm.

Investigators are working to figure out what caused the structural failure.
