Rappers Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa are being sued by 17 concertgoers who attended their concert in New Jersey, early in August. During the concert close to 40 people were injured and several had to be hospitalised when the crowd barrier gave way suddenly. One of the victims also said that he had suffered a fractured spine.
According to TMZ, the suit stated that Snoop and Wiz yelled out to the crowd to come forward, right before the collapse happened, and the plaintiffs say that it was this call that lead to the stampede. After the collapse, several people fell almost 10 feet onto the concrete below and the show came to an abrupt end.
