At least 42 Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa fans were injured with one in critical condition following a railing collapse during the duo's concert at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey, last night. About halfway through the concert, the rappers rallied the crowd to "get up," moments before the rail collapsed, causing dozens of concertgoers to fall several feet to the concrete pathway below. (The railing in question separated the outdoor lawn and semi-enclosed secondary stage.) As reported by NBC, Camden police spokesman Dan Keashen said the majority of the injuries were broken bones, bumps, and bruises, with one seriously injured person taken to a nearby trauma unit for treatment. Both Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa were immediately escorted by security out of the venue after the collapse, and the concert was canceled. Tonight's BB&T Pavilion show, headlined by Salt-N-Pepa and Vanilla Ice, is expected to go on as planned.
