A crowd stampede at Lil Wayne‘s music festival in New Orleans has resulted in the injury of several people.
For unknown reasons, an estimated 15,000 people began running on Saturday night following Meek Mill‘s performance at the Lil WeezyAna Fest. It’s unclear what exactly started the panic, but it’s speculated that rumors of gunfire or a fight were to blame.
Amongst the chaos, many people were pushed to the ground and experienced mild cuts, scrapes and bruises. No serious injuries have been reported. However, it’s unknown how many people were injured during the incident.
Concession workers also reported stolen goods and cash during the outbreak, as they abandoned their tents to seek safety.
Medical staff provided care on site at Lil WeezyAna Fest, treating those who suffered injury.
The one-day music festival continued on despite the madness.
