What The Black Friday Left Behind

A Wal-Mart worker died early in the morning hours when the crowd went out of control on Friday. Shopper's desperate to get in the store broke down the doors of the store, to get the first hand on the products. A worker of Wal-Mart fell and customer's walked right over him, he died on the spot. Other worker's who noticed this happening came to the rescue but were trampled too.

The worker has been identified as Jdimytai Damour, he was told to open the doors of the Stores as the clock struck 5:00 a.m. The officials at Wal-Mart disclosed that they when they announced about closing the store due to the death, customers shouted angrily and did not stop to shop. This Wal-Mart Store is located in Valley Stream on Long Island.

An eight months pregnant woman was also hurt in this stampede and was taken to the hospital, as well as four other people have been reported as hurt. As customer's were asked to leave due to the tragic death, they complained that they had been standing in the lines since Thursday morning to get a hold at the products featured on sale and they would not leave. Some 2000 people had been standing in the line before the opening of the store.

Damour was taken to the hospital directly after he was rescued from the trampling crowd. He was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital at around 6 a.m.

"The safety and security of our customers and associates is our top priority," said Dan Fogleman, a company spokesman. "At this point, facts are still being assembled and we are working closely with the Nassau County Police as they investigate what occurred."

Kimberly Cribbs, who had witnessed the stampede, said shoppers were acting like "savages".

Police were reviewing video from surveillance cameras in an attempt to identify who trampled to death a Wal-Mart worker after a crowd of post-Thanks giving shoppers burst through the doors at a suburban store and knocked him down. Criminal charges were possible, but identifying individual shoppers in Friday's video may prove difficult, said Detective Lt. Michael Fleming, A Nassau County Police Spokesman.
