Worst Black Friday Fights: Walmart Worker Dies

In 2008, a mob got tired of waiting for a Walmart (WMT) store to open. Anxious for their Black Friday deals, folks at the Long Island WMT location busted into the store and began a stampede and riot that sent store employees leaping atop vending machine to avoid the mob.

The violence that followed was worse than the last two Black Friday fights; it left 34-year-old Jdimytai Damour dead and four shoppers injured, including a woman eight months pregnant.

I can’t think of any Black Friday deals worth that kind of violence.
