Partygoers escaped unharmed from a popular nightclub after the walls started to crumble during a graduation party.
Police said it was remarkable that nobody was injured after bricks came flying down at The Library, in Perth.
The club, in the inner district of Northbridge, was filled with people when sharing the outside wall collapsed around 3.30 on Sunday morning.

The nightclub hosted an event called & # 39; Thirsty & # 39 ;, which was announced as a party for students with & # 39; strippers, cheeseburgers, whipped cream and champagne & # 39 ;.
Western Australia Police say it was fortunate that no one was killed when bricks crashed from the side of the building, ABC reported.
The outer wall fell into a fenced parking lot and on the front footpath, near pedestrians standing outside the hall.
The police were already there when the wall started to crumble when they were called to the location to go with a man who had allegedly abused a bouncer.
& # 39; Some of our officers from Perth were (were) present when the wall collapsed, and they even captured part of it in images of their cameras & # 39; s worn on the body & # 39 ;, said Sergeant General Jamie Brennan.
& # 39; They heard a loud bang and saw a lot of dust and people who were clearly very alarmed by the incident. & # 39;
The two-storey building was still filled with people when parts of the outer wall collapsed around 3:30
Senior Sergeant Brennan said agents immediately took action and evacuated the nightclub before closing the street.
They ensured that nobody was injured in the incident before the fire brigade arrived to confirm.
Senior Sergeant Brennan said it & # 39; very, very lucky & # 39; was that no one was hurt or killed.
& # 39; It was a good result, it could have been a lot worse, so very happy & # 39 ;, he said.
Confidence in structurally responsible buildings is declining after hundreds of residents were evacuated from two apartment buildings in Sydney.
On Christmas Eve 2018, residents were evacuated from the 36-story Opal Tower in the Sydney Olympic Park, less than a year after it was completed.
Less than six months later, mascot Towers in southern Sydney sent residents who wanted to take their belongings and evacuate when the building started to crack.
Residents of the 132 units were evacuated when the 10-year-old 10-storey building suddenly crumbled.
The shock evacuation led to fear that more apartments in the suburbs, which were built on a groundwater level, could be affected.
