CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say 42 people have been hurt after a railing collapsed during a concert by Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa in New Jersey.

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

Camden County officials say one fan suffered a serious upper body injury and remained hospitalized Saturday in stable condition. Numerous other people were treated for broken bones, bruises and other injuries.

The railing was separating a sloping lawn from a covered portion of the outdoor 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.
