The railing, which separated the crowd from the performance in Camden, New Jersey, yielded after fans surged towards the stage, with over 50 people falling 10 feet onto a concrete pathway, authorities told Action News.

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.

The 42 injured concertgoers were reportedly transported to local hospitals.

Most of them had broken bones, bumps and bruises, county spokesman Dan Keashen told NBC 10.

Dramatic footage, which went viral on social media, showed dozens of fans tumbling on top of one another when the gate suddenly gave way in the middle of the concert at the BB&T Pavilion.

 

The concert was reportedly cancelled thereafter the incident.
