Six young Irish students died in the early hours Tuesday when a fourth-floor apartment balcony collapsed during a 21st birthday party in the California university town of Berkeley, authorities said.


At least seven people were injured, with some in critical condition, after the tragedy at a building located two blocks from the University of California, Berkeley campus, local media and officials said.

Most of those involved were Irish students from University College Dublin, Ireland?s largest university, on the J1 work-study visa program, which allows them to teach, study, conduct research and work legally during their stay in the United States. The Alameda County coroner?s office confirmed that six people died.
