Jersey Shore Stars Avoid Injury in Roof Collapse

Jersey Shore stars Snooki and Vinny were lucky to escape injury after a glass ceiling gave way above them during a party in Manhattan on Saturday. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Vinny Guadagnino were attending the “Masks and Mayhem Purim” event at Solo restaurant when glass began crashing down from the ceiling onto the crowd below.

“Omg roof just collapsed at the purim event!” Jersey Shore cast member Snooki posted on her Twitter feed from the scene. “We thought the dj was beatin the beat hardcore but nope, the roof couldn’t handle Snooki and Vin.”

Large chunks of ice reportedly fell onto roof of the Sony building atrium, causing part of the glass ceiling to collapse. Fifteen people attending the Purim event reportedly suffered minor injuries and the area was temporarily evacuated. Eventually, order was restored and the party continued.

“The roof may have fallen and no1 got hurt, but the party still goes on!” Snooki posted on her Twitter feed. “I’m glad everyone’s ok. Thank you to the owners of Solo Restaurant for taking care of everybody and letting us keep the Purim Party poppin!”

Well, it’s nice that Snooki seems to have her priorities straight. Never mind that people could have been killed or seriously injured, at least the party wasn’t ruined!
