On Sunday, October 21, the floor of an apartment collapsed at a Clemson frat party, leaving 30 injured and six hospitalized.

Police received a call at 12:30 a.m. and arrived at the off-campus Woodlands apartment complex to more than two-dozen injuries.

Party-goers were celebrating Clemson’s victorious homecoming game when students claim the second story floor fell from under them.

Larissa Stone, a sophomore at Clemson University, said she arrived to the party about 20 minutes before the floor collapsed, “So everyone was jumping. The beat was about to drop and literally the whole floor collapsed,” she said. “It happened so quickly. I stood up, and everyone was trying to climb out. People are under other people. People are hurt. People are bleeding. I had blood on my sneakers. It was really bad.”

Kappa Alpha Psi, the fraternity hosting the party, was cited by the university in 2017 for hosting a party at another off-campus apartment in which “damages occurred to the property.”

The city of Clemson, contractors, and the Woodlands of Clemson property manager are currently inspecting the apartment complex clubhouse.
