Wal-Mart Stampede Kills Worker (Video)

Jdimytai Damour was run over by a crowd at Wal-Mart on Black Friday. More than 2000 holiday shoppers surrounded a Long Island Wal-Mart in the Green Acres mall and literally stampeded into the store when it opened at 5 a.m. The unlucky 34-year-old temporary worker was knocked over and stepped on as hundreds of bargain hunters rushed inside.

Later, as police officers tried to give Damour CPR, a crowd of people could still be seen entering the store, trying to take advantage of a $798 Samsung 50-inch Plasma HDTV, a $28 Bissel Compact Upright Vacuum, and a $69 Samsung 10.2 megapixel digital camera. The crowd was so frenzied that they even bent the metal frame of the door as they entered Wal-Mart.

Historically, shoppers have been so eager for the drastic price reductions offered by Wal-Mart that they literally camped out in front of the store, hoping to be first in line. See the second video for a non-fatal example of this where a woman is only knocked down.

Should have taken the day off like everyone else.

Moral of the story: Hardwork doesn't pay.

To the idiot who says the police don't want to put their mouth on him:

"In a major change, the American Heart Association said Monday that hands-only CPR — rapid, deep presses on the victim’s chest until help arrives — works just as well as standard CPR for sudden cardiac arrest in adults."

I certainly hope whoever said that wasn't involved in the stampede. Everyone who chanted "push the door in" or who otherwise was involved in the frenzy is partially responsible for this man's death.

Just goes to show human beings are just animals. The whole "me first" mentality sickens me. So these skanks got their tvs and kept on shopping even though they killed a person to get it. How could they go home and sit in front of that tv knowing they killed someone to get it?

Recession? What recession?

Who is John Galt?
