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

Students didn't raise the roof at this party.

University of North Texas students were celebrating homecoming on Sunday morning at a third-floor apartment at The Ridge in Denton when the floor suddenly gave way sending screaming partygoers crashing into the apartment below.

Abiola Busari, the student who was hosting the homecoming celebration, told WFAA-TV that the party got out of hand when people he didn't know showed up. At least six people had injuries, Denton police said, and no one had to be transported by ambulance.

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

IPhone X Has Green Line Display Problem
This goes hand-in-hand with the expectation that production of the iPhone 8 handsets will be cut by 50%-60% by the end of Q1 2018. Like previously, some iPhone X users were reporting that they are seeing a mysterious green line on the edge of their display.

Busari is staying with friends in the meantime.

Denton Fire Captain Brian Glenn says the collapse likely broke pipes and plumbing and investigators were out Sunday afternoon analyzing the damage.

Officials were forced to cut off water and power to the unit in which the collapse took place, the first- and second-floor apartments beneath it and nine other units in the building.

Carley Carroll is a UNT sophomore who lives on the second floor directly below the unit that collapsed.
