Over a Dozen Hurt After Floor Collapses at House Party
QUEENS, N.Y. — Two people were taken to the hospital after a floor collapsed at a house party. About 100 people were dancing on the vacant third floor of a house in Queens, N.Y. when it happened on Saturday night.
The house has since been shut down because it’s too dangerous.Neighbors say the party came to a crashing halt when the floor caved in and some partygoers got trapped. Firefighters say eight people had no way out and they had to use special equipment to help them out through the windows of the home.
The City Department of Buildings says they are investigating the cause of the accident.
The two people taken to the hospital had non-life threatening injuries. Ten other people were treated at the scene.
