Apartment floor collapses during party. Tamala Edwards reports during Action News at 5 a.m. on November 13, 2017.

A video shows the moments after the floor of a Texas apartment collapsed.

Students at the University of North Texas in Denton gathered at a third-floor apartment to celebrate homecoming Saturday night.

But the floor gave way under the weight of the dozens of students gathered at the party.

Several people ended up falling into the apartment below.

The people that lived in the apartment below were out of town.

Police say there were no serious injuries and no one needed to go to the hospital.

ABC11 has decided to slowly reduce the number of stories on the website that have a comments section. We believe very strongly that our audience should have an opportunity to discuss and debate events in our world, however, we have not been able to moderate the comments as well as we would like. Instead of hosting a platform that could allow a few loud and ugly voices to dominate a conversation, we want to encourage everyone to join us on our social media platforms and speak out there.
