Dozens Injured in Tallahassee Floor Collapse

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Rescue workers and police officers found a scene of total chaos after the floor of a second-floor apartment in Tallahassee collapsed, spilling party-goers into the clubhouse below.
The Tallahassee Democrat reports investigators still don't know what caused the floor to give way at the Seminole Grand penthouse early Sunday. Officials say 55 people were injured.
City inspectors and other officials plan to comb through the rubble Monday to try to learn what happened. Damage is estimated at $250,000.
Officials say about 100 people were thought to have been inside the four-bedroom apartment when the floor gave way.
Tallahassee police spokeswoman Anitra Highland says most of the injuries were "broken bones and sprains."
The apartment complex was built in 1995 and is comprised of nearly 40 buildings on 44 acres.
