AceShowbiz - A railing collapsed at a Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa concert at Camden, New Jersey, injuring more than 40 people. The incident happened during the rappers' live performances at the BB&T Pavilion on Friday, August 5.
A fence separating the lawn from a secondary stage collapsed, sending dozens of people to fall roughly 10 feet onto the concrete below. It happened when people rushed toward the railing after the two performers gestured to fans to come toward the stage.
People were treated for bruises, broken bones and minor injuries. One person is allegedly hospitalized for a serious upper body injury. "Hope everyone from last night is alright. That s**t was crazy," Khalifa tweeted after the concert. Snoop Dogg sent a similar message on his own social media, "Prayers out to my fans. wishn u all a quick recovery. Love."

Police are still investigating the incident. Upcoming concerts at the same venue this weekend will still go as planned. One on Saturday features Salt N Pepa and Vanilla Ice and the other show on Sunday features Fifth Harmony.
"We have secured the impacted railing section, and tonight's show with I Love the 90's well as well as tomorrow's show with Fifth Harmony will go ahead as scheduled," the promoter said.
