Manhattan, NY - 10 Hurt at Purim Party By Falling Ceiling
Manhattan, NY - Shards of glass rained down on hundreds of revelers â€” including actor Chris Noth and “Jersey Shore” cast members Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Vinny Guadagnino â€” at a Midtown party last night, injuring ten, officials said.
“Omg roof just collapsed!” Snooki Tweeted right after the 11:15 p.m. accident at the Sony Building, where some 300 guests had gathered to celebrate Purim, a Jewish costume celebration.
“We thought the dj was beatin the beat hardcore but nope, the roof couldnâ€™t handle snooki and vin,” she posted.
Itâ€™s not clear why pieces of the ceiling fell in the atrium of the Madison Avenue building, which was evacuated.
“I think me and @sn00ki felt the wrath for not being Jewish,” Guadagnino Tweeted.
“It was a rocking party, this happened right in the middle of everything,” one attendee told The Post.
The injured guests were taken to area hospitals with cuts.
“Small pieces fell everywhere, in my hair, on my shoes,” said Dorian Levy, who was dressed as Jackie Moon, the Will Ferrell character from “Semi-Pro.”
“A glass ceiling fell on everyone,” said Nellie Barkley, 29. “This is my first and last time at one of these.”
