Railing Collapse at Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa Concert Injures 42
At least 42 people were injured Friday night after a security barrier collapsed at a Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa concert at Camden, New Jersey’s BB&T Pavilion, where 50 people fell 10 feet onto a concrete pathway after the railing broke loose.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, a railing that separated the lawn section from the seating area of the amphitheater collapsed shortly after 10 p.m. EST from the pressure of people surging forward to see the two rappers on the concert’s secondary stage.
After the barrier collapsed, the concert stopped – Snoop Dogg can be heard telling someone offstage to cut the music, “That’s enough of that” – and an announcer told the audience to remain calm while police and medics tended to those injured in the fall.
