Floor collapses during party, injures 30

I stood up, and everyone was trying to climb out.

Authorities are now investigating why the floor caved in. People were under other people. I had blood on my sneakers.

Although no one was trapped in the debris, 30 people were injured, according to a statement issued by Clemson Police Chief Jimmy Dixon. "It was really bad".

Dozens were injured when a floor collapsed at an apartment complex near Clemson, South Carolina early Sunday morning.

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