Shocking footage has emerged showing the moment a railing collapsed at a Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa gig injuring at least 42 people.
The rappers were playing at the BB&T Pavilion in New Jersey, when the incident occurred, reports The Sun.
The clip, posted to Twitter, shows the crowd bouncing when all of a sudden a railing at the front of the tier collapses, sending the first several rows of people nose-diving over the edge to the concrete floor several feet below.

A local Camden County Metro Police spokesman said at the time that between ten and 15 people had been injured, however it is now being reported that as many as 42 were taken to nearby hospitals.
Most of the injured have reportedly been treated for minor injuries, but at least one person was seen being carried away from the scene on a stretcher.

Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa were quickly escorted off stage by security guards following the incident and although fans were reportedly told to wait as the concert would start again soon the gig was cancelled and the venue evacuated.
The gig was part of the Merry Jane Presents Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa: The High Road Tour which continues tonight at the Xfinity Centre in Mansfield, Massachusetts.
