The company that operates a New Jersey amphitheater where 42 people were hurt when a railing collapsed during a Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa concert says it has “secured” the broken section and that upcoming concerts will go on.

Live Nation says it’s also “actively working” with authorities and structural engineers to determine the cause of the Friday nights collapse at BB&T Pavilion in Camden.

Camden County officials say one fan suffered a serious upper body injury and remained hospitalized Saturday in stable condition. Numerous other people – including some Live Nation employees – were treated for broken bones, bruises and other injuries.

The railing separates a sloping lawn from a covered portion of the outdoor concert venue. The lawn is several feet above a concrete walkway.
