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.”
