Wal-Mart worker dies after shoppers knock him down - Yahoo! News: "A worker died after being trampled by a throng of unruly shoppers when a suburban Wal-Mart opened for the holiday sales rush Friday, authorities said.

At least three other people were injured.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., in Bentonville, Ark., would not confirm the reports of a stampede but said a 'medical emergency' had caused the company to close the store, which is in Valley Stream on Long Island."

I hope WALMART gets hit in the pocketbook with this one.

Wal-Mart didn't trample the guy.

The ones that caused the death with their feet and their frenzy of shopper greed I guess, should be the one's to share the burden of payment to the guy's family.

Perhaps it will come to be discovered where Wal-Mart managers were to blame. But, I doubt it.
