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

Detectives believe the collapse was caused by too much jumping.

Denton Police say they are working to confirm the previous noise complaints, but said those kinds of calls are low priority and people have usually left the party by the time police arrive. The junior at the University of North Texas said he was dancing when the collapse occurred and also fell into the apartment below.

"That's life threatening. If we were in our living room, we wouldn't have made it out because by what we've seen, it's just completely gone".

Officials told NBC 5 that pipes were broken and leaked into the second floor.

Carroll and her three roommates, all North Texas sophomores, were not home at the time.

"A vast choice of amenities and its friendly staff create a worry-free environment that allows residents to focus on the most important thing - being a successful college student", according to the complex website.
