Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa’s concert in Camden, New Jersey Friday night was cut short when a railing collapsed and injured approximately 42 people.

The incident occurred around 10 p.m. ET at the BB&T Pavilion, a Camden County spokesperson confirmed to EW, after which the rest of the concert was canceled. While the injuries sustained were mostly broken bones and bumps and bruises, one person was taken to the trauma center of Cooper University Hospital in critical condition and was released Saturday morning.

Other attendees at the concert shot footage, showing fans leaning against the railing along the lawn when it collapsed. A witness told NBC News it was was about 10 feet tall.

Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa continue on The High Road tour tonight with a performance at the Xfinity Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts. Neither rapper has commented on the incident.
