At least 42 people were injured after a railing at a concert venue in New Jersey collapsed, causing dozens of concert goers to fall in the gap between the public and the stage. The incident was caught on tape by several fans, and so far, the company responsible for the concert organization hasn’t issued a statement.
The show featured Californian rapper Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa, and it was being held at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, New Jersey.
The stars of the show were escorted off the stage as fans fell in the gap between the stage and the platform. At least one person suffered serious injuries, but later, reports showed that the victim was in stable condition. Some of the fans fell 10 feet onto a concrete walkway below the stage.
So far, authorities have not reported on a factor that may have prompted the incident. Until a full investigation is carried out, it’s unclear whether the organization behind the concert or the venue is to blame. Until a full report is released, we cannot speculate on the causes of the accident.
Nevertheless, keep an eye out for incidents like this.
Make sure to stay alert to signs that structural problems like this are about to happen, and avoid panicking in emergencies. If you’re ever injured in an incident caused by a third party who was negligent, do not allow their negligence and bad behavior to go unpunished. You have rights. And if you or a loved one has been injured, you should have the best represent you to make sure your rights are being upheld.
We hope the victims of this incident are recovering quickly.
