At an off-campus ‘St. Fratty’s Day’ party last week in San Luis Obispo several thousand students from California Polytechnic State University were partying on the roof of a garage when the roof gave out. As the roof crumbled the Cal Poly State students partying on the garage were taken down, crashing to the ground, leaving one person’s ‘thigh impaled’ by rogue debris and up to seven other students treated for injuries.
This was a ‘St. Fratty’s Day’ college party, and that of course means that at any given time there’s at least once person SnapChatting the party, and that’s precisely how we ended up with this crazy ass footage of the garage’s roof imploding with the students standing on it:
Firefighters were called in to clear up the damage and treat wounds, the San Luis Obispo official firefighter account also sent out several tweets with photos showing the damage that took place:
AN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) — At least eight people were injured after a garage roof collapsed during an early St. Patrick’s Day party at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo.
The city said in a statement that in the most serious injury, a person’s thigh was impaled by a piece of debris early Saturday. At least seven others were treated for cuts and bruises. None of the injuries are life-threatening.
The university says it is working with police, and it has opened its own investigation that could result in disciplinary measures.
Several thousand students, most in green, were at the party that was spread throughout the neighborhood.
So it sounds like one hell of a rager, and while it’s reassuring that there were no fatalities I do still feel pretty badly for the student who had their leg impaled on the debris, hopefully they’ll at least get a badass scar out of it.
