During the performance in Camden, New Jersey, Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa were performing on a temporary stage when the railing gave way as fan swarmed toward the stage. At least 42 people were injured as dozens upon dozens of fans fell on top of each other. While dozens were injured, most of the injuries were broken bones and bruises, though one person was taken in critical condition to Camden’s Cooper Trauma Center.

“Everyone all of a sudden started pushing,” Abbey Hecht, one of the fans who was there at the time, told Action News. “And the gate broke. And all of a sudden I fell like six or seven feet.”

She said that after the collapse, there were four or five people on top of her who had fallen with the collapse as well. “I couldn’t move. I literally thought I was dying. It was so scary,” she said.

The Camden County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the incident and looking to determine the cause of the railing collapse.
