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 (http://bit.ly/2aBxbqc ) 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.
