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

The unidentified 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."

Nassau County Police are still investigating and would not confirm the witness accounts. The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death. Police did say there were several injuries but weren't more specific.

Jessica Keyes was among the shoppers. She told the Daily News she saw a woman knocked down just a few feet from the dying worker.

"When the paramedics came, she said 'I'm pregnant,'" Keyes said.

Paramedics treated the woman inside the store and then, according to Keys, told the woman:

"There's nothing we can do. The baby is gone."

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 don't exactly see how you could really blame this on Walmart. While better crowd control might have been thought of, it clearly wouldn't make a difference if people were pushing through with enough force to take the doors off their hinges. It was the greed of these customers that killed this guy.

Much larger crowds than this are manageable. Wal-Mart can definitely handle the crowds if they choose to do so, they just haven't.

walmart could have had staff and security to form this mass into a calm line before opening the doors....i could easily see a case brought against walmart for creating an unsafe environment, especially for the worker's family....

Made possible by an exploitative commercial gimmick that places human beings in a dog eat dog situation where only the most aggressive shoppers will have a chance to walk away with something that is in very limited supply. It's actually quite cruel, IMO. People standing in lines for hours only to be told that the item they have been waiting for is sold out.

It not only shows a very poor understanding of human nature, it feeds into the worst of our instincts.

I was out yesterday and drove past the local Best Buy. At about 11:30 Thanksgiving morning, in the cold and rain and wind, there were people waiting in line with tents and Coleman stoves. I don't know how long they had been there. It was a pitiful sight.

They need to stop the Black Friday stupidity. It's like the casino mentality, but there's an actual prize if you're the first of 1500 people who knock down a worker who's then trampled to death. It's a black Friday for that worker's family, for sure. I guess the value of a human life has a rollback price discounted by $300.

Shots fired at Toys R Us in Palm Desert; 2 reportedly dead
12:42 PM, November 28, 2008

Shots were fired at a Toys R Us store in Palm Desert, causing shoppers at the busy store to scramble for cover. The Associated Press and KCAL-TV Channel 9 reported that two people were found dead at the shop.

Details about the shooting were still spotty, but witnesses said the scene at the store and nearby businesses was chaotic. The witnesses told TV stations that they shoppers were evacuated around 11:30 a.m. and were told a gunman was in the store.

“I’ve got a bunch of people from Toys R Us that ran out of the building,” Jeff Vallaire, a worker at a nearby World Gym, told the Sun newspaper in Palm Springs. “I’m just hearing from what they told me. They ran out the back. They heard gunshots and came in here. ... It’s pretty crazy around here right now."

The Toys R Us is located on 72314 Highway 111 in Palm Desert.

My wife saw a Sears ad yesterday for a washer/dryer set she was interested in. It was about half price from where it had been a few months ago so we decided to buy it. The sale was advertised to last from 5 AM to noon. She went in at 11:00 and the salesman told her they had sold out almost immediately after they opened. She asked if he could offer any other options. Surprisingly, he said he would sell them to her at the advertised price along with a 12 month SAC payment if she didn't mind waiting two months for delivery. Sold. Kudos to Sears for honoring their advertised price without anyone having to die in the process.

Per the link Phobia supplied.

"The 34-year-old Wal-Mart employee suffered an apparent heart attack and was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

An autopsy will determine the exact cause of death. He was later identified as Jdimytai Damour of Jamaica, Queens.

Four others were also hurt in the crush, including a 28-year-old pregnant woman. She was taken to a nearby hospital, where doctors determined her baby was fine."

If it's bad enough that pregnant women shouldn't go then who else should avoid these sales? Is it unsafe for older folks? Kids? People with heart conditions? Should the retailers put warning labels and disclaimers on their ads?

What the hell is going on there that pregnant women should stay away?

This year, my whole family is foregoing gifts and pooling money for a relative that is traveling to California to have surgery.

I never really liked the whole idea of gifts anyways. A card or a phone call is more than enough for me.

If it's bad enough that pregnant women shouldn't go then who else should avoid these sales? Is it unsafe for older folks? Kids? People with heart conditions? Should the retailers put warning labels and disclaimers on their ads?

What the hell is going on there that pregnant women should stay away?

there are some video's earlier in this thread that should show you why pregnant women, kids and the elderly should definately avoid these.

The worst thing about all of this is any of the people that get charged for trampling this man to death and those that killed an unborn child will no doubt get an attorney that will argue they all had a "Mob Mentality" that came with the RUSH in the door. Kind of a temporary lack of reason or insanity.

Not saying its right but this is america where you can be guilty and get away with it.

If you need several small gifts, I'll let you in on what friend of mine and I did to her brother one Christmas. Their mom had bought him a package of socks that had 12 pairs. We opened them and wrapped about 8 pair individually. We took the other 3 pair, and wrapped one sock at a time in with other gifts we were wrapping for him. The last pair went in his stocking. Do your boys need socks?

Good point. The kids always get toys, games, etc. because that's how it should be for 'em. The funny thing is that when I was a kid, my grandparents always gave me savings bonds and I just sort of shrugged when I opened my envelopes and went on to my other gifts, many of which I'd end up breaking within a week. After high school, I cashed those "insignificant" bonds and had earned enough interest to pay for a good portion of my college education.

Interestingly, the election of Barack Obama alone has served to heal much of the animosity our Western allies in particular held towards our country because they equate him as being essentially the opposite of a failed leader in Bush.

I got up at around 9, went to Radio Shack and procured my PS3 controller and then went to Ace for an Irwin bit set, a flashlight, and a Dremel set. No lines, no crazy people, no early. In and out.

Radio Shack and Ace have to practically offer you a free meal with your purchase to get any customers in these parts since Wal Mart, Home Depot, and Lowes showed up.

It's insane; our full-time census population is 12,000 people, and we need a Home Depot and a Lowes???
Brother can't even get a decent steak or slab, but by God I've got 40 hammers to choose from!

A lot of the old-timers up here are still loyal to ACE because they've known the owner for years. It's really something to come from a City like KC, where anonymity is par for the course to a place like this, where the owner of ACE comes to your office and brings Holiday Baskets at Christmas time.

Radio Shack had to expand to Satellite Radio services just to keep the doors open. Their markup is ungodly, but it's still the place to go when you need some funky adapter or watch battery.

Oh my God I think this whole state is on drugs. Now correct me if I'm wrong, because it has been a while since I shopped in KC.

When you go to Wal-Mart, the grocery store, or ANY place with isles, the standard protocol is to approach the isle just like driving your car down the road; STAY TO THE RIGHT.

I swear to God; NOBODY IN THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY PRACTICES THIS PRINCIPLE.
You'll be coming down the isle, and they will go from the center RIGHT IN TO YOUR PATH.
At first it was quirky. Then it was "WTF"? Then it was highly annoying,
Now; it's straight-up warfare. When they do that shit, I will stop the cart, look right at them, and not move a muscle until they get the hint.

You know what? I have dedicated an entire thread to this very subject in the past. There isn't a place on Gods green earth where you can go and find worse cart drivers than Walmart on any given day. I have come to the conclusion that this bizarre cart driving technique isn't a local thing, but a nation wide tendency.

If I walk into any Walmart across the country, two things are set in stone. First, at least half of the customers look like they are either meth monkeys, crack whores, or should be on Americas Most wanted. Second, three quarters of the people haven't figured out the basic skills of cart etiquette.

A rule with no exception is, if I am in there for more than five minutes, some ditchpig with an ass at least as wide as double axe handles, sporting skin tight stretch pants, is going to be standing in the isle with her cart sideways. This monster Birtha is always dawning the deer in the headlight look and this behemoth has its mouth hanging open. ( The patented slackjaw look) This ditchpig is completely oblivious to others in the store environment.

As stated above, then you have the middle of the isle driver. The middle of the isle driver is hauling ass at a pace that would make a formula one driver blush. This person is all about speed, but completely unmindful that they are half way in your cart lane. This type of driver has been known to mow over small children like a speed bump and not even blink. After having to ditch my cart into the side of a gondola display and making sure all my fingers and toes are clear, I am tempted to pull a U-turn, chase them down and give them the pit maneuver.

If I have to go to Walmart, I try to get there early before all the riffraff make it out of bed. If I am in there on any given day before 10am, it's normally safe. It has been my experience that hairy dudes with wife beaters, ditchpigs, meth monkeys, carnival employees and crack whores, are generally not all that enamored about getting up to early. Late nights of hitting the pipe and staring on episodes of COPS, evidently takes its toll.

That is a normal day at Walmart, Black Friday, no way in hell.

This community is a "unique" Wal-Mart experience...:rolleyes:

We have no industry up here, save skiing in the winter( at least 20 board shops in as town of 12K ), and retirees/part-timers in the summer who swell the population to 60+K.
There once was logging up here, but the spotted owl combined with UFO abduction put the kibosh on that. Well, mostly the owl.
We have a "bubba"-contingent, but it's fairly small due to the lack of aforementioned industry. They spend most of their time fixing peoples trucks, siphoning gas, and/or cooking Meth. We have a massive "Moron + extra "M" / Two Steps-Removed From Scientology Contingent", but they tend to stay about 30 or so miles north of here in Snowflake, or down in Show Low where several of the more prominent Moron families have stores and car dealerships etc.
This is Apache Country too. Navajo Country is right next door, but they rarely swing through except to sell jewelry and kochina dolls. I wish they would swap Rez's. Navajo and Apache are as different as night and day. Navajo were Agrarians and Artists, Apache were straight-up War and Hunt.
And all these years later; it still shows. Those dudes get to drinking, and it's SHOWTIME! I live about 600 ft. from a fairly new liquor store. It's the first place up here where you can buy micro-brews and a bottle of White Star, if you so desire.
What is their bread and butter, you ask? 30 packs of Milwaukees Best ICE. I see, on a daily basis, Apaches wheeling DOLLY'S of that shit out to their vehicles. Not singular, PLURAL. And at New Years, Christmas, St. Paddy's, and Super Bowl? A fucking RYDER TRUCK.
Now, let's throw a 25% population of Hispanics, legal or otherwise, on top of that.

So in the summer time, it's Natives, Blue Hairs, and "Me no speak English" as far as the eye can see. And in Wal-Mart, it's a joyous experience...:rolleyes:
You're crammed asses to elbows. You've got Natives swerving all over the motherfucker like some jacked-up Go Kart Track, you've blue hairs that stop IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FUCKING ISLE to chat up their NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR, and the Hispanics are trying to shop while keeping their minimum of three kids from running around like some Wal Mart, "Lord of the Flies".

The siblings of a worker trampled to death by Wal-Mart shoppers looking for Black Friday bargains have filed a lawsuit against the retailer and the shopping center.
Jdimytai Damour's three sisters and brother filed the wrongful death suit, according to their attorney, Jordan Hecht of the Hecht, Kleeger, Pintel and Damashek Law Firm.

"We’re going to be suing Wal-Mart as well as the owner of the mall, the security company, and we’re contemplating an action against the police and the county of Nassau, although we’re waiting to see what our investigation fleshes out about their involvement," Hecht told FOXNews.com Tuesday.
Named in the suit are Wal-Mart, Green Acres Mall in Nassau County, N.Y., Vornado Realty Trust and Securitas Security Services USA. Damour, a 6-foot-5, 270-pound temporary worker, was asphyxiated at the Wal-Mart in Valley Stream, N.Y., Friday morning while trying to shield a pregnant shopper from the throngs of bargain hunters pushing their way in.

The suit was filed in New York Supreme Court (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,460924,00.html#) in the Bronx on behalf of Elsie Damour Phillipe, one of Damour's sisters who is administrator of the dead man's estate.
It alleges Damour's death resulted from "the carelessness, recklessness negligence, wanton disregard for public safety and gross negligence of the defendants ... in the staging, conducting and advertising for sales events."
Nassau County Police Commissioner Lawrence Mulvey told FOX News on Monday that investigators were scanning surveillance tape in an effort to identify individual shoppers involved in the melee.
"We are reviewing film ... from individual cell phones, from cameras that are in place in the store, trying to identify, if in fact we can identify, people that are culpable in this," Mulvey said. "And it is difficult because a lot of people in the front of the line were pushed forward, and it’s difficult for us to decipher who is more responsible in all of this."
But Hecht said the retailer should have been prepared for the crowds when it offered sale items that included a Samsung 50-inch Plasma HDTV for $798, a Bissel Compact Upright Vacuum for $28, a Samsung 10.2 megapixel digital camera for $69 and DVDs such as "The Incredible Hulk" for $9.
"This is something that as a retailer you need to know about," Hecht said. "You need to forsee and should forsee, and I don’t think that it takes anyone with special training to understand that this is going to happen."
Hecht said Damour's death could have been "easily preventable."
"There’s hundreds of other retailers that have done these types of promotions," he said. "Remember when the iPhone first came out? How many hundreds of people were on line there? You got a card, stood in line, single file, no problem. There are many different things available to Wal-Mart, none of which were used."
Funeral arrangements for Damour, 34, are in the works, but will be kept under wraps to protect the family's privacy.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc., in a statement Friday, called the incident a "tragic situation" and said it had tried to prepare for the crowd by adding staffers and outside security workers, putting up barricades and consulting police.
The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Wal-Mart pays $2M to avoid charges in death probe


http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090506/ap_on_re_us/us_wal_mart_death

MINEOLA, N.Y. – Wal-Mart agreed Wednesday to pay nearly $2 million and improve safety at its 92 New York stores as part of a deal with prosecutors that avoids criminal charges in the trampling death of a temporary worker last year.

Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice said that if she had brought criminal charges against the retailer in the worker's death, the company would have been subject to only a $10,000 fine if convicted. Rice declined to say what charges were considered against Wal-Mart, citing the secrecy of grand jury proceedings.

Instead, she said, the company has agreed to implement an improved crowd-management plan for post-Thanksgiving Day sales, set up a $400,000 victims' compensation and remuneration fund, and give $1.5 million to Nassau County social services programs and nonprofit groups.

The agreement included no admission of guilt by Wal-Mart.

"Rather than bringing the world's largest retailer to court and imposing a small fine against them, I felt it was important to require significant safety changes that will affect the whole state," Rice said. "Our goal is for the protocols that are set up to be the gold standard for crowd management in this industry."

Details of Wal-Mart's crowd-management plan for its New York stores have yet to be worked out. The retailer will work with two independent safety experts on the plan, and the experts will review it over the next three years. Wal-Mart will be responsible for complying with the recommendations.

"The crowd management plan we are announcing today was developed by a team of experts whose experience includes NFL Super Bowls, Olympic games, concerts and national political conventions," Wal-Mart vice president Hank Mullany said.

The company said it will consider expanding the safety plan to all of its stores.

Rice's office began a criminal investigation shortly after last November's customer stampede.

Jdimytai (Jimmy-tree) Damour, a temporary employee, had been on the job for about a week and had no training in security or crowd control when a crowd estimated at 2,000 broke down the Valley Stream store's doors, trapping him in a vestibule.

Built like an NFL linebacker at 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds, the 34-year-old Queens man died of asphyxiation. Eleven others, including a pregnant woman, were injured.

Edward H. Gersowitz, an attorney representing Damour's family in a civil lawsuit, blasted the settlement and said the family was never consulted before the deal was announced. He called for a special prosecutor.

"The ability of Wal-Mart to, in effect, buy off this criminal investigation demonstrates the epitome of corporate arrogance that has become all too familiar in this day and age, and shows how Wal-Mart has nothing but contempt for the victims of such corporate malfeasance," he said in a statement.

Any victims who accept payment from the Wal-Mart compensation fund will be required to waive their right to a separate civil suit against Wal-Mart, Rice said. Also, she said, Wal-Mart has agreed to advertise the compensation fund in the daily and weekly newspapers that cover Valley Stream and its surrounding neighborhoods.

"Facilitating the compensation is one of the main goals of this settlement," she said.

The company also agreed to an independent review of its procedures for post-Thanksgiving Day sales. The prosecutor said her office will oversee compliance.

"We are hoping that this safety plan becomes the nationally recognized model for crowd management among all retailers and becomes an industrywide best practice," she said.

The community grant money includes $1.2 million for Nassau County's Youth Board, which helps nonprofit agencies provide career development, employment training and other opportunities. The retailer also will donate $300,000 to the United Way of Long Island's Youth Build Program in Nassau County. The deal also calls for Wal-Mart to hire 50 high school students annually to work in its five stores in the county.

People just suck. Materialistic animals. Gotta have this. Gotta have that.
And doing it to buy Christmas presents. Shows you how effed up the holiday has become.
I'm sure the Lord feels honored by people trampling people to death in order to save a few bucks on a nintendo.
All those people standing in line for hours should be swallowed up in an earthquake and cooked alive like lobsters in a stew of hell fire.

.....I haven't had my coffee yet,sorry.

It would have been ironic if his name was Mufasa.

It'd be nice if people learned their lesson with the economy being so sh*tty
this year, and not expend their entire savings account on a stuffed animal for their kids or trample someone to death so they can buy a DVD player for 9.99.

When you ask for a crowd to come to your property it is your responsibilty to provide proper security to avoid things like stampedes. Wal-mart got off easy. At least compared to the family of the deceased.

This is true. Especially when the store manager sees a thousand imbred rednecks outside the store hopping up and down ready to crush anyone in their way when the doors open.

It was Long Island. They weren't inbred rednecks. They were inbred people wearing sweatsuits, chains and Mets caps.
