Clemson Floor Collapse Injures Dozens

He said thirty people were transported to three area hospitals.

Dozens of people have been hospitalized after they fell several feet when the floor of an apartment building collapsed during a party near Clemson University in SC.

No individuals were trapped during the collapse and no one suffered any life-threatening injuries, Clemson Police Chief Jimmy Dixon told CNN affiliate WYFF.

News reports cite a Clemson City Police Department news release as saying a call was received around 12:30 a.m. Sunday about the collapse of the floor at an apartment clubhouse. Videos shot at the scene showed a large party with people jumping around and dancing when the floor suddenly gave out from under them.

In 2016, the tycoon had promised to donate at least half his fortune to philanthropic causes. The family had earlier offered almost half-a-million dollars for any information on him.

It appears as many as 30 people were injured and taken to the hospital for various injuries. The center of the floor at a clubhouse collapsed into the basement, police said. Social media footage captured the first floor collapsing onto the lower level just after midnight. It was built in 2004, Slann said.

"We're just thankful that it was not any worse than it was", Dixon said.

Police arrived at the Woodlands Apartments complex, where the incident occurred, soon thereafter.
