Shards of falling glass ruined a New York Purim party attended by some 300 guests, including Sex and the City actor Chris Noth and Jersey Shore cast members Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Vinny Guadagnino, the New York Post reported Sunday.

Ice reportedly broke through a glass atrium at the Sony Building in New York, lightly injuring at least 10 people at the event on Saturday, according to media reports. The injured guests were taken to area hospitals with cuts.

“Omg roof just collapsed!” Snooki Tweeted after the 11:15 p.m. accident at the party in Midtown.

“We thought the dj was beatin the beat hardcore but nope, the roof couldn’t handle snooki and vin,” she posted.

Police told reporters that it wasn’t 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 New York Post.
