That's going to be a hard no from their insurance company.

Estimates put the size of the party at nearly 500 people.

"This just breaking!" is a great way to start that video.

Residential floors are generally rated for 40lbs per square foot.

500 people in a 400 square foot room is definitely going to be an issue.

We got an apartment off campus, there were old people living above and below us.  They loved us for some reason.  The guy below us was named Willard.  We had a big drunk party, warned the neighbors in advance.  For some drunk reason, everyone decided to form some bunny hopping line dance to a Clash song...

I'm kind of drunk myself, noticing the house is shaking... and I yell out "Stop, you're going to kill Willard!"  There was only a small amount of grumbling at the party, and Willard was just fine.

Fire crews and medical teams treated around 25 people with a variety of injuries, including scratches and cuts up to a potentially broken arm; however, no patients were transported by EMS, with most either driving themselves or being taken by friends to local area hospitals.

I seem to recall several similar stories from UGA in the last few years, which raises the question: Is construction just shoddy in that area, or are UGA students especially fat.

The 500 dumbasses at the party would only have to chip in $20/each to reach the goal. Make them pay for it.

How the hell did they get an average of 1.2 people per square foot in that room?

That's "Tokyo rush-hour subway " levels of crowded.

They said 500 were there, I'm sure some where outside, some were in other rooms.

$10k won't come close to the repair costs.

I'm uber-wealthy but I'm not ambulance-wealthy. It's a step up from city-bus-wealthy.

Retired from Planning & Building in a city with a Uni & JC, & never had this. I guess Rockford, IL just isn't a party school town. Well, not even a party town. It's kinda where old people go to visit their parents. But, Hubby & I enjoyed our years there. Good coworkers, jobs we enjoyed, nice neighborhood, ... The only bad part were the confiscatory level, impoverishing property taxes. They are unreasonable and I blame myself for not understanding & researching them as due diligence. (Sorry: off-subject diatribe.)

Code-enforcements in the area tend to happen only on request, which includes construction permits. Seldom were my need to respond to a construction failure, which is an uncommon event in the US & tends to happen from weight stress. All I can remember are a couple of instances where hoarders over-loaded floors with heavy items (stacked books are heavy!), and hoarders tend to be a bane for code-enforcement requests: once started they seem to never end until the hoarder dies, sadly.

But problems be with partyers in Rockford. Hell, I never even went to a Wake that was out-of-control. My In-Laws were impressed with all the cemeteries!

Sort of CSB
Lived in an old house my senior year.  We had the first floor other folks on the second.  One night at like 3 am after the bars closed dudes upstairs where having a late night party.  I am standing in the kitchen door way watching the ceiling bounce a foot or so as people where dancing up stair.  Went and told the dudes what was happening and they stopped before visiting through the floor.

EndCSB

There are reasons why public places have occupancy limits.

Libertarians and other idiots will tell you those regulations are unnecessary.

They are, of course, wrong about that, as they are wrong about everything.

It's probably that the buildings are just that old & lack of upkeep.

When will we stop cheaping out on construction in the U.S.?  I mean, if a floor can't hold 500 people are we even trying?

/Was sure this was going to be a outside deck.  Those collapse pretty regularly because of the combination of under building and over partying, but that's usually 10-20 people on a small deck, which, while crowded, does seem like something that we should either build for or require weight ratings plaques posted visibly for.

This reminds me... when was the last time that the G updated/revised the load limits for passenger elevators using a current 'average mass for one body' ?
