    Very sad.

    NEW YORK–Police say a Wal-Mart worker has died after being trampled by a throng of unruly shoppers shortly after the Long Island store opened today.

    Nassau County police say the 34-year-old worker was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead at about 6 a.m., an hour after the store opened.

    Police also say a 28-year-old pregnant woman was taken to a hospital for observation.

    Wal-Mart Stores Inc., in Bentonville, Ark., would not confirm the reports of a stampede during the day-after-Thanksgiving bargain hunting, but said a "medical emergency" caused them to close the store.
  2. That is very sad, who set it up so that a worker would stand in the face of danger like that?
