CAMDEN - A lawyer representing 17 people injured when a railing collapsed at a Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa concert in Camden earlier this month is suing the performers and the venue's owner.

The suit claims BB&T Pavilion operator Live Nation didn't take the proper precautions to prevent a partition separating a lawn from a secondary stage from collapsing shortly after the Aug. 5 show began. People fell roughly 10 feet onto the concrete below at the Camden venue.

The collapse occurred as the rappers were gesturing to fans to move toward the small stage. Authorities have said 42 people were hurt.

The 17 people filing suit include 14 concert-goers and three workers. Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa are also named in the suit, which was filed in Philadelphia Wednesday.

A spokesperson for Live Nation declined to comment on pending litigation. Representatives for the rappers haven't returned messages by the Associated Press seeking comment.

The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
