Clemson University sophomore Larissa Stone told Greenville News that it happened very quickly.

Tal Slann, property management president at Woodland's, told CNN that the floor came through as dozens of party goers danced "in unison".

"Clemson student affairs representatives were dispatched to all three hospitals where injured individuals were being transported and are gathering more information at this time". Videos shot at the scene showed a large party with people jumping around and dancing when the floor suddenly gave out from under them. "It was a lot to take in". I stood up, and everyone was trying to climb out. "The clubhouse will be inspected by structural engineers as soon as possible", the email said in part. People are under other people. "From there, the homeowners association will determine how to rebuild the clubhouse to make it safe for all residents". "It was just a shocking moment for everyone", he continued, adding that he saw some people "crying" and "bleeding". "Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who were injured we and apologize for any inconvenience".

Thankfully, none of the injuries are believed to be life threatening.
