More than 40 people were injured, one critically, Friday night after a railing collapsed at a Snoop Dogg concert in New Jersey, police said.

The hip hop star was performing with Wiz Khalifa at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden when the railing gave way at about 10:30 p.m. ET, causing dozens of people to tumble several feet to the concrete below.

Camden police spokesman Dan Keashen said most of the injuries were broken bones, and bumps and bruises.

Twenty people were transported to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, including a patient in critical but stable condition, officials said. By Saturday afternoon, all the patients had been released, including patients treated at other hospitals in Camden.

Social media video showed Snoop and Wiz performing on a secondary stage toward the back of the venue. The pair were urging the crowd to "get up" in the moments before the railing folded.
