When the beat drops, anything is bound to happen. At one house party in South Carolina, the floor caved in — and it was all captured on camera.


It all went down, pun intended, at a condo/clubhouse near Clemson University. The party was rolling a little too deep on Sunday evening when the floor gave out. Dozens of people dropped a floor down into the basement, piling on top of each other. Luckily, no one was seriously injured, although one witness describes a graphic scene.

Clemson sophomore Larissa Stone says the room was “packed” when a popular song came on. “So everyone was jumping. The beat was about to drop and literally the whole floor collapsed,” she said.

“It happened so quickly. I stood up, and everyone was trying to climb out. People are under other people. People are hurt. People are bleeding. I had blood on my sneakers. It was really bad.”

This is truly a “when the beat drops…” meme gone wrong. We’re just glad everyone is ok.
