A Bolivian university graduation ceremony went from joy to terror in an instant when the floor of a room full of graduates collapsed.
Dramatic images show the hole created after the floor gave way and people can be seen attempting to pull victims out of the four by three meter (13 by 10 feet) void.
According to local media, 10 people were injured when they fell through the floor. All were taken to local medical facilities.
The chaos occurred immediately following the conclusion of a ceremony that saw some 50 students graduate from Salesiana University in the southeastern Bolivian city of Camiri.
