Consumerism turns deadly
A Long Island Wal-Mart worker was trampled to death this morning as over 2,000 shoppers pushed and shoved their way through the doors at 4:55 a.m., five minutes before the doors were set to open.
The New York Times reports that people didn't stop to help Jdimypai Damour, 34, who had been waiting with other employees in Wal-Mart's entryway, nor did they stop running through the store after medics arrived. According to officials, even as they tried to perform CPR, hundreds of people continued to stampede through the store.
