Before long, video showing the aftermath of the collapse surfaced:


There were reportedly several serious injuries among those who were hurt.

Those who fell through the floor tumbled into the basement below.

Twitter users were grateful things weren't even worse:

Others couldn't help but crack a joke to lighten the mood.

Clemson University released this statement regarding the incident:

"Clemson Student Affairs is working to determine how many of those injured were Clemson students, and to notify other institutions if one or more of their students were in attendance."

An investigation of the collapse continues and those with injuries are being treated. Though the situation was terrifying, many are thankful no lives were lost.


It's okay to have a little fun, but safety should always come first.
