Black Friday Trampling Tragedy

A 34-year-old employee inside a Long Island Walmart was trampled to death this morning by a mob of shoppers clamoring at the doors of the Valley Stream stores at 5 a.m. When the store opened, says a coworker, the employee “was bum-rushed by 200 people…and killed in front of me.” Customers knocked the doors off the hinges and also knocked down a pregnant woman who was rushed to the hospital with a possible miscarriage. “They’re savages,” said one customer.
