A recent One Direction concert in Lima, Peru, took a turn for the worse when fans rushed to the front of the stage, leaving 47 young fans injured.

When doors to their Sunday evening (4/27) performance opened, several concertgoers pushed to the front in an attempt to get as close to the stage as possible. The five-piece pop act immediately quit performing and pleaded with the crowd to stop or they would be forced to leave the stage.

Of the 40,000 in attendance at the El Campino Stadium, 47 teens, reportedly ranging from 12 to 15 years old, were treated with the first symptoms of asphyxia. Tents were set up as a pop-up emergency treatment center following the incident, and a second evacuation plan has been put into place, according to published reports.

The concert marked the band's second stop on a 69-city "Where We Are" world tour. The North American leg will kick off Aug. 1-2 in Toronto and extend through an Oct. 5 performance in Miami Gardens, FL.

One Direction most recently launched "Midnight Memories," the teenage superstars' third studio effort. The November release, which dropped via Columbia Records and Sony Music, topped The Billboard 200, as well as charts in 17 other countries.
