Floor collapse near Clemson University leaves at least 30 hurt, authorities say

Apartment floor collapses leaving 30 injured near Clemson University

In April 2016, several people were injured at a Clemson rental home when a deck collapsed during a party, The Greenville News reported at the time.

Some 30 people were hurt when a floor collapsed early Sunday during a party at an apartment in SC near the campus of Clemson University, news reports say.

Partygoers screamed, and those who didn't fall stood on portions of the first floor that remained and gazed below in shock. They were rushed to hospitals.

Part of the clubhouse floor collapsed into the building's basement as attendees were dancing in unison, Woodlands Property Management President Tal Slann told CNN.

The clubhouse had been leased for a private party.


One student said he felt something "weird" just before the collapse and suddenly the guy behind him just disappeared. Some people standing on the sidelines pulled out their cellphones to record the floor collapse.

'It was a lot to take in'.

Police say none of the victims were trapped, and no one suffered life-threatening injuries.

The incident occurred hours after Clemson won a football game against North Carolina.
