Initial reports that more than 40 people were injured Friday night after a barrier at a concert in Camden featuring Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa couldn't hold back the surging crowd may have been overstated.

Cellphone video spread across the Internet following the mishap at the BB&T Pavillion ( see above ), which left dozens of concertgoers atop one another.

The temporary railing, several feet above a concrete walkway, separated a sloping lawn from the bandshell.

Although initial reports were that 42 people were taken to area hospitals, Camden County police confirmed 10 to 15 injuries.

As of noon Saturday, Snoop hadn't commented on Twitter or Facebook.

He posted a photo on Instagram taken after the show ( above ).
