People were under other people.

About 30 people were taken to local hospitals after the center of the floor caved in at the clubhouse near the SC university. "Everyone was on the floor and people were screaming and there was wood sticking up from the floorboards".

It is understood numerous people at the party attended nearby Clemson University.

Police claim 30 people were injured when the apartment clubhouse floor broke.

Witnesses said the party at the event space of an apartment complex was just getting started when the floor collapsed.

Tal Slann, property management president at Woodland's, told CNN that the floor came through as dozens of party goers danced "in unison". He warned his friends and suggested a retreat to the balcony but the floor collapsed before they could make it.

Police said they received a 911 call at 12:30 a.m. about the cave-in and ambulances were quickly dispatched to the area. There were injuries. They were not life-threatening.

Slann sent residents of The Woodlands an email saying the floor in front of the clubhouse fireplace had collapsed during a party.

"The Clubhouse and pool area is OFF LIMITS to all", the email read, according to The Associated Press. "Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who were injured and we apologise for any inconvenience".

Police said an investigation into the incident was ongoing. Reports say many people were taken to local hospitals with injuries but none were considered life-threatening.
