Floor collapses at Clemson homecoming party

As a crowded group of Clemson University students and local residents danced and jumped around at an apartment clubhouse, Jeremy Tester felt something strange beneath his feet. “You could hear the floor about to go through, kind of,” he said, “but nobody thought it was going to happen. They just kept going.” But suddenly the floor gave way. Dozens of partiers dropped into free fall and landed in a mass of sprawling bodies in the basement. Police said 30 people were injured when the floor of the apartment clubhouse collapsed during a party on homecoming weekend in Clemson, South Carolina.
