Thousands of frenzied teenagers, who spent the night camped out by Sydney Harbour awaiting a concert by pop star Justin Bieber , surged toward the venue Monday morning, sending at least eight girls to the hospital and injuring several more.
Police canceled the performance after the swarm, which may have begun when rumors spread that the 16-year-old Canadian heartthrob had arrived early. In the crush, at least 10 girls fainted, and paramedics had to pull them out of the crowd, according to Australia's Network Seven.
Of the eight sent to the hospital, one fractured her knee cap, though most had hyperventilated.
Child-labor permits issued for Kate's kids
Never miss a local story.
Kate's eight are free to appear on their mom's upcoming reality show.
A spokesman for the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry says producers have obtained child-labor permits for Kate Gosselin's twins and sextuplets to appear with their mother on a series of TLC specials, "Kate Plus 8."
Troy Thompson said Monday that the permits are good for six months, then must be renewed.
Pennsylvania regulators concluded last month that permits should have been obtained for Gosselin's old show, "Jon & Kate Plus 8."
The series ended last year when she split with her husband, Jon.
'Star Trek' items to be auctioned
Shoppers can boldly go where no man has gone before when "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry's collection of personal effects and show memorabilia go up for auction.
Hand-annotated scripts, costumes from the show and Roddenberry's own studio pass are among the items available at the June 27 auction at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, administered by Julien's Auctions.
Proceeds will benefit the Roddenberry Foundation, which makes grants to support children, education and the environment.
The original Capt. James T. Kirk, William Shatner , is also getting in on the auction, selling his custom Harley-Davidson motorcycle, his Golden Globe nomination certificate and the plaque he was presented when he got a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame in 1983.
Shatner, 79, plans to donate a portion of the proceeds to the Hollywood Charity Horse Show, which helps handicapped children.
