A worker died after being trampled and a woman miscarried when hundreds of shoppers smashed through the doors of a Long Island Wal-Mart Friday morning, witnesses said.
The unidentified worker, employed as an overnight stock clerk, tried to hold back the unruly crowds just after the Valley Stream store opened at 5 a.m.
Witnesses said the surging throngs of shoppers knocked the man down. He fell and was stepped on. As he gasped for air, shoppers ran over and around him.
"He was bum-rushed by 200 people," said Jimmy Overby, 43, a co-worker. "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."
Nassau County Police are still investigating and would not confirm the witness accounts. The Medical Examiner will determine the cause of death. Police did say there were several injuries but weren't more specific.
Jessica Keyes was among the shoppers. She told the Daily News she saw a woman knocked down just a few feet from the dying worker.
"When the paramedics came, she said 'I'm pregnant,'" Keyes said.
Paramedics treated the woman inside the store and then, according to Keys, told the woman:
"There's nothing we can do. The baby is gone."
Before police shut down the store, eager shoppers streamed past emergency crews as they worked furiously to save the store clerk's life.
"They were working on him, but you could see he was dead, said Halcyon Alexander, 29. "People were still coming through."
Only a few stopped.
"They're savages," said shopper Kimberly Cribbs, 27. "It's sad. It's terrible."

NOTHING WILL WORK UNLESS YOU DO...
She cant paint that picture anymore clear. Buttttt shit I hate working at things sometimes... smh and i hate working in general I wish i had enough bread to just take care of my family...Put my daughter through college...ahh nice...well of course she will be put in college any which way but hell im lazy sometimes...there i said it! LAZY...Laziness may appear attractive and all but work gives satisfaction.
funny because when I really want something...really bad I find myself using less of the word work. I feel like alot of people would be succesful at the end of the road with working but they dont wanna do the job...Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in ugly clothes and looks like work. Some say that im lazy of course and i give up too easy and i failed..smh...I did not fail at all I just found 30,000 ways that won't work. geeezzz well I was feeling blahhh once again.. but just remember everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time to take. god bless blog heads....

I know at times i come off mean as hell but whatever if u like me enough u will deal with it...wow that was terrible...look im just expressing how i feel a this time..Its mostly because I feel My mind just stopped thinking of things to write...I changed my book alot so Im trying to fit in certain things. Ill be fine soon...just felt I have not wrote in her for a while..dont you just hate when people are sooo nice to you when ur at ur worst like pissed the F*%k off..hehe I mean let me be mad for a sec b4 u throw in ur advice...lmao I wanted to take a walk on my break at work and this annoying ass black guy that works in my building asked if he can walk with me so I told him sure..I love taking walks...especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.That worked..Lord Jesus..help me be pure...wait but not yet. And today I did not want to get up for workk....then I thought Nell dont stay in bed unless u making money in bed...ha and im no slut on the corner so I got my ass up and got ready.

Well Well Well...shit im happy..lol Wow I still cant believe I lived to see history....well of course Ive been around for other things that will be in our children's textbooks but they were not so positive such as 9/11. Congrats America I know this was a good move. Most of the things that we see now like yesterday in the world....had been declared impossible before they were done. When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way like Obama you will command the attention of the world.....clearly proven. And i hope this history will be kind to our future...oh do i hope! We followed the light people which made us leave our old world...well i should say it made us start our departure..hehe. I would not attach to much importance to the negative and ignorant people who dont like this new shine that took place last night...its sad. I just hope we can see all that was said from his mouth that helped alter our decision to lean more to his view..I know it wont take a day but I just hope we see something..some change..I know he feels very good about what he overcame...The greater the difficulty the better the feeling is when accomlished. I know sometimes history never looks like history at time when ur living through it, but i hope this time it willlll.Like our elders always say The man who swims against the stream will always know the strength of it. well blogheads...god bless..see you soon.. I started my short stories also!! check it out negative or postive feedback who cares..it helps!!!
