The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the railing separated the pavilion's lawn from inside seating and collapsed when concertgoers leaned on it
An eyewitness told the paper that about 50 people fell about three metres (10 feet) onto concrete.

It was reported that a Camden County Metro Police spokesman said 10 to 15 people were hurt at the time of the incident. While CNN have reported 42 people had been taken to the nearby hospital for treatment.
Eyewitnesses claimed that an announcement was made telling fans to wait and the concert would resume, however it was later cancelled and the venue was evacuated.
An emergency area was reportedly set up near to the venue's car park where injured people were seen on a stretchers and in cots.
