Crazy: Walmart Employee Trampled By Shoppers Wanting Big Screen TV's

Be sure to watch the video at this link, where a guy explains that people wanted $400 big screen tv's and the Walmart employee lost his life in the process. The AP story:
NEW YORK – 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-Thanksgiving 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.

Other workers were trampled as they tried to rescue the man, and customers stepped over him and became irate when officials said the store was closing because of the death, police and witnesses said.
