Default [AS2] My character falls through the ground

My character just falls through the ground in my game, the floor is the base, and block 13 is about four platforms (all one symbol). Below is my code, it's directly in the movie clip. I'm using AS2. Any help appreciated, thanks.

Below is my code/script:

ActionScript Code:
// Stephen Gamage onClipEvent(load){     speed = 7;     jumpspeed =  7;     gravity = 0;     gravityfaster = 0.3;     jumping  = false; } onClipEvent(enterFrame){     if(Key.isDown(Key.LEFT)){         this._x -= speed;     }     if(Key.isDown(Key.RIGHT)){         this._x += speed;     }     if(Key.isDown(Key.SPACE)){         jumping = true;     }     if(jumping){         this._y -= jumpspeed;     }     gravity += gravityfaster;     this._y += gravity;     if(this.hitTest(_root.floor1)){         this._y -= gravity;         gravity = 0;         jumping = false;     }         /*The code below flips the character either     left or right depending on which key is down.     */         if(Key.isDown(Key.LEFT)){         gotoAndStop("right");     }     if(Key.isDown(Key.RIGHT)){         gotoAndStop("left");     } }

Falling through the floor should be prevented by a hittest; it looks like you try to do that here:

this._y -= gravity;
gravity = 0;
jumping = false;


trace ("the floor hittest works");
//this._y -= gravity; //you don't need this line.
//there will be no change in y if the hittest returns true
gravity = 0;
jumping = false;
