A railing collapsed Friday night during the Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa concert at BB&T Pavilion in Camden, injuring 42 people, authorities said.
The concert was stopped after the accident happened shortly after 10 p.m. People were pressing against the railing that separates the lawn from inside seating when it collapsed.
Katie Colbridge, 23, a recent Temple University graduate who attended the show, said about 50 people fell about 10 feet to a concrete pathway below.
"Everyone's piling on each other," said Colbridge, who lives in Northeast Philadelphia, describing the chaotic scene.
"Once they jumped on the stage [Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa] and the spotlight hit, all the people surged forward," she said.
Dan Keashen, Camden County spokesman, said Saturday that 42 people were injured Friday night. They suffered minor injuries. Thirty-one people were taken to Camden's three hospitals - Cooper University Hospital, Lourdes Medical Center or Virtua Camden - and another three to Kennedy University Hospital in Cherry Hill, he said. The remaining eight were treated on site by medics and released, he said.
Peggy Leone, a Virtua Camden spokeswoman, said four people were treated there and released. A spokeswoman at Kennedy, Nicole Pensiero, confirmed that three people were treated and released there for minor injuries.
A Live Nation spokesman did not immediately respond to questions about the collapse via email Saturday.
Vince Basara, spokesman for the city of Camden, said Saturday that city officials from the building and code-enforcement departments and the fire marshal were at the concert venue Saturday morning.
He said they were working with Live Nation and BB&T to install temporary railing with a buffer zone before Saturday night's concert.
BB&T will provide security to make sure concertgoers Saturday cannot go up and touch the temporary railing, Basara said.
Basara said the venue does not have any outstanding violations and that all inspections have been up to date.
BB&T and Live Nation will install permanent railings to replace what collapsed, he said, and the city will inspect the permanent fixtures.
Colbridge said after the accident that some people simply ran from the pile, while others were limping and needed to be held up by their friends.
An announcer asked the audience to remain calm as police and medics responded to the scene, she said.
