Wal-Mart worker dies after shoppers knock him down
NEW YORK – A worker was killed in the crush Friday after a throng of shoppers eager for post-bargains burst through the doors at a suburban , authorities said.
At least four other people were injured, and the store in Long Island was closed.on
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. in Bentonville, Ark., called the incident a "tragic situation" and said the employee came from a temporary agency and was doing maintenance work at the store.
"He was bum-rushed by 200 people," co-worker Jimmy Overby, 43, told the Daily News. "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."
Nassau County police said the 34-year-old worker was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at about 6 a.m. The man's name was not released and the cause of death was not immediately known.
A police statement said shortly after the store's 5 a.m. opening time, shoppers "physically broke down the doors, knocking (the worker) to the ground."
How much is one life worth? Flat screen TV's were on sale for around $800. Is it worth trampling someone to death for that? Did anyone even notice they were stepping on another person?
