A night of fun quickly turned into a night of fear for several people who attended Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa‘s High Road tour concert at the BB&T Pavillion in Camden on Friday. More than 40 fans were injured, one critically, after a railing collapsed at the concert, according to NBC News.
While the hip hop stars were performing a string of hits to a crowd singing a long to every word, the railing unexpectedly gave way around 10:30 p.m., causing dozens to fall several feet onto the concrete below.
Twenty people were reportedly transported to Cooper University Hospital in Camden. All patients were later released on Saturday. The majority of injuries included broken bones, bruises and bumps.

“Live Nation is closely following the recovery of the injured fans and employees as well as actively working with authorities and structural engineers to determine the cause of the collapse,” the company said in a statement, according to NBCNews.com.
Both Snoop and Wiz immediately took to their Twitter accounts to ensure the safety and well-being of their fans was weighing heavily on their minds.
