Harrisonburg apartment floor collapses ... injures students

The floor of an apartment complex full of college students collapsed late Friday night during a party. According to WHSV TV-3:
Harrisonburg Police say say that the floor of a third floor apartment has collapsed onto the second floor, and the second floor collapsed onto the first floor at the Hunters Ridge Apartment Complex on Port Republic Road.

Rockingham Memorial Hospital says two people were flown to UVA Medical Center with serious injuries. Nearly 30 other students were treated at RMH for cuts, scrapes and bruises.

Officers on the scene say several people were unconscious after the collapse.

A witness on the third floor before the collapse says a certain song came on and a group of people inside the apartment complex were jumping before the floor caved in.
Prayers for the injured young people.
