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 abruptly falls midway through the concert.

A woman is showing she was injured at the concert, according to her Twitter account.

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.
