Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa Concert Ends After Railing Collapses
Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa's High Road Tour made a stop in Camden, N.J. last night (Aug. 5) which ended in chaos when a railing collapsed leaving 42 people injured.
The incident occurred shortly after 10 p.m., Philly.com reports. The break seemed to happen as a result of the weight of the crowd pressing against the metal rail which separates the lawn from pit seating.
Video of the incident was captured by bystanders. One clip shows Wiz and Snoop hyping the crowd up while people in the front row mash into a bunch with their camera phones out. At one point, the railing gives in and people begin to cascade into the lower level. According to a witness, about 50 people fell about 10 feet onto a concrete slab below, turning into a chaotic scene.
Police and medics responded, and around 42 people were taken to local hospitals and treated for their injuries.
The High Road Tour kicked off on July 20 in Palm Springs, Fla. and boasts Kevin Gates, Jhené Aiko, Casey Veggies and DJ Drama as supporting acts for select dates. The tour runs through the summer, ending on Sep. 2 in Auburn, Wash.
