This gives a new definition to "shopping until you drop." A Long Island Wal-Mart employee is killed after an "out-of-control" mob of thousands of deranged shoppers smashed through a door and trampled him. The Daily News has excellent play-by-play and cellphone camera photos of the riot.
When the madness ended, 34-year-old Jdimytai Damour was dead and four shoppers, including a woman eight months pregnant, were injured.
"He was bum-rushed by 200 people," said Wal-Mart worker Jimmy Overby, 43. "They took the doors off the hinges. He was trampled and killed in front of me.
"When they were saying they had to leave, that an employee got killed, people were yelling, 'I've been on line since Friday morning!'" says one witness. "They kept shopping."
Peace on earth and goodwill toward men ... unless they're standing between you and a flat screen on sale.
