Worker dies at Long Island Wal-Mart after being trampled in Black Friday stampede

A Wal-Mart worker died after being trampled when hundreds of shoppers smashed through the doors of a Long Island store Friday morning, police and witnesses said.

The 34-year-old worker, employed as an overnight stock clerk, tried to hold back the unruly crowds just after the Valley Stream store opened at 5 a.m.

Witnesses said the surging throngs of shoppers knocked the man down. He fell and was stepped on. As he gasped for air, shoppers ran over and around him.

"He was bum-rushed by 200 people," said Jimmy Overby, 43, a co-worker. "They took the doors off the hinges. He was trampled and killed in front of me. They took me down too...I literally had to fight people off my back."

The unidentified victim was rushed to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:03 a.m., police said.

The cause of death wasn't immediately available pending results of an autopsy.

A 28-year-old pregnant woman was knocked to the floor during the mad rush. She was hospitalized for observation, police said. Early witness accounts that the woman suffered a miscarriage were unfounded, police said.

Three other shoppers suffered minor injuries, cops said.

Before police shut down the store, eager shoppers streamed past emergency crews as they worked furiously to save the store clerk's life.

"They were working on him, but you could see he was dead, said Halcyon Alexander, 29. "People were still coming through."

Only a few stopped.

"They're savages," said shopper Kimberly Cribbs, 27. "It's sad. It's terrible."

I hope Wal-Mart has to dig into their coffers to pay for crowd control every Black Friday from now on!

Did you see the pictures? I didn't see a white white face in the crowd.

This is the exact reason I think it's stupid to get up at 5 am and stand in line for cheap plastic and/or wiring. People are idiots.

i was gonna say....

i hope walmart has to dig deep in its coffers for being liable/culpable for this and pays this minimum wage worker's family a whole lot of damages.

i hope walmart has to dig deep

why should walmart pay (and i'm sure they are insured), for these bottom feeders need for cheap electronic goods?

it's hardly the exact reason: it wasn't stupid before this murder?

It's the exact reason. 1 door divided by 500 people x 5 am = STUPID even if no one ends up squished. Besides 5 am is an ungodly hour to be awake.

what do you expect from a bunch of black savages???

why should walmart pay

because in the chain of events that lead to the guy's death, they held the sale, advertised it, got people riled up to arrive early, etc.

they had no crowd control, no security
and it was on their property

are the "savages" who bum rushed the door liable? mostly definitely yes in my opinion

$8 Wranglers.... whoahhh!

walmart should definitely pay for it. it's fucking black friday. they should know by now after the melee that seems to happen every single fucking year that they need security and crowd control. they probably just didn't want to pay anyone extra to actually work because that's how they are. i hate walmart so much. words cannot describe...

But did anybody get any DEALS??!!

Actually, the man that died was a seasonal employee.
Posted: Nov 30, 2008 7:32 pm
 
The seasonal employee was there to sell shit. Extra security guards would be a cost that does not add value.

This is exactly why I shop at Sam's Club. The $30 membership fee ensures a savage free shopping experience. And even if some savages manage to get in, they are usually kept docile by a plentiful offering of nasty free sample food items.

At least you're not the only one at work with death breath at 5 am.

300 new Wal-Marts opened across Canada over the last weekend! I have not been to a Wal-Mart in several years. Besides not liking the corporation, I can't stand the people who shop there. This story kind of sealed my opinion of the typical Wal-Mart shopper.

i'm surprised that they didn't just talk an 80 year old man into working extra hours for free like they were doing a few years back. at least they had some sense to get some extra people in there, even though they weren't security guards, which really is who they should have had manning the doors.

the photographs are interesting...what the FUCK is a BLITZ line? isn't that just ASKING for trouble right there? it just seems that they were LOOKING for trouble with that.

Guy who died was a temp worker, Jamaican immigrant.

I will pray that almighty Lord takes revenge on Wal-Mart management scum for this murder

Does he have a green card? I know Wal-Mart will pay illegals cash like they were busted for doing a few years back. Wal-Mart tried saying that they weren't culpable since the employees were hired through a sub-contractor or some bullshit lie like that.

Wal-Mart should be prohibited from displaying any American flags since they are a total disgrace to this great nation of ours and demonstrate none of the values that make this country so great.

Hiring illegal immigrants IS a great value! What are you talking about?

It was Raven-Symone' dolls they were after.

All that craziness for a bunch of Chinese crap.

This just happened yesterday, but I hope it doesn't give people any ideas for next Black Friday.

John-Boy: CALM DOWN NOW! JUST HOLD IT!
Olivia: You watch your temper! You're the oldest, you make them mind!
John-Boy: Well I am tired of being the oldest! I feel like an old mother duck!
Olivia: Can't do a thing about that now. You're stuck with it.
John-Boy: [Quietly, to the kids] All right next - the next one of you that moves is gonna get a spanking!
