    Walmart Worker Trampled to Death in Black Friday Stampede
    2008-11-28 09:09am

    A Walmart worker was trampled to death and a pregnant woman miscarried when hundreds of bargain hunting shoppers smashed through the doors of a Walmart store in Long Island Friday morning.

    "He was bum-rushed by 200 people," Jimmy Overby, 43, a co-worker, told the New York Daily News. "They took the doors off the hinges. He was trampled and killed in front of me. They took me down too...I literally had to fight people off my back."

    The worker, who was not identified in the report, was an overnight stock clerk who tried to hold back the onrushing, unruly crowd just after the Valley Stream store opened at 5 a.m.

    Another witness told the paper she saw the pregnant woman knocked over nearby the dying man. When paramedics came, she told them she was pregnant but the ambulance crew said she had lost the baby after an examination.

    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
