CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say 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, New Jersey, collapsed, causing people to fall onto the concrete below. It happened shortly before 10:30 p.m. Friday.


Camden County officials tell WCAU-TV that 10 to 15 people were hurt and five were taken to hospitals. Their conditions weren't known and the number of injured could increase.


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 says the concert, which was about halfway finished, stopped abruptly when the accident happened.


It was later cancelled.
