Man Dies in Black Friday Stampede

A worker at Walmart was trampled to death when a crowd broke through the door to start shopping this morning. A women who was eight months pregnant was also injured when she was knocked down and tramples. Early reports indicated that she had miscarried (presumably from the incident) but those now appear to have been unfounded.

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

The 34-year-old employee, a temporary maintenance worker, tried to hold back the unruly crowds just after the Valley Stream store opened at 5 a.m.
