Shocking video captures moment railing collapses at Snoop Dogg concert

At least 10 people have been hurt after a railing collapsed during an outdoor concert by Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa in southern 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.

The incident happened shortly before 10.30pm (3.30am Irish time) last night.

Camden County officials said 10 to 15 people were hurt, with five taken to hospital. Their condition is unknown at present.

The railing was separating a sloping lawn from a covered portion of the concert hall. The lawn is several feet above a concrete walkway.

Concertgoer Katie Colbridge said the gig, which was about halfway through, stopped abruptly when the accident happened.

The show was then cancelled.
