A New Jersey hip hop concert came to a screeching halt this week when a railing separating concertgoers from the stage toppled over.

Attendees captured the accident on video from multiple angles. In most of the videos, Snoop and Wiz Khalifa appear shocked before security personnel lead them quickly offstage.
The collapsed railing held back attendees on a sloping lawn that is several feet above a concrete walkway, according to the AP.
The concert was canceled following the accident.
Victims were treated at area hospitals. Their conditions weren't known Saturday morning.
