Wal-Mart employee trampled to death
In a rush for holiday bargains on Black Friday, a temporary Wal-Mart employee was trampled to death in a New York store.
The New York Times reports that county police were called in at 3:30 for crowd control.
At 4:55, about 2000 shoppers couldn’t be held back any longer and they shattered the doors and pushed through the openings.
Jdimytai Damour, 34, was crushed and killed by the stampede.
CNN reports that the union that represents retail workers says that the death could have been prevented.
CNN also reports that the union is calling for an investigation to see that Damour’s family sees justice.
