Railing collapses at rap concert; at least 10 hurt

Authorities say at least 10 people have been hurt after a railing collapsed during an outdoor concert by Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa in southern New Jersey.

A partition separating concertgoers from the stage at the BBT Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey, collapsed, causing people to fall onto the concrete below. It happened shortly before 10:30 p.m. Friday.

Camden County officials tell WCAU-TV that 10 to 15 people were hurt and five were taken to hospitals. Their conditions weren’t known and the number of injured could increase.

The railing was separating a sloping lawn from a covered portion of the concert hall. The lawn is several feet above a concrete walkway.

Concertgoer Katie Colbridge says the concert, which was about halfway finished, stopped abruptly when the accident happened.

It was later canceled.
