Hordas asesinas en Wal-Mart

Curiosidades


Si algo demostró este “black friday“, es que la crisis financiera en Estados Unidos no ha frenado el gasto como se esperaba. Los datos hablan por si mismos (fuente: AP), pero no hay mejor indicador que estas hordas asesinas de consumidores en Wal-Mart:

Suddenly, witnesses and the police said, the doors shattered, and the shrieking mob surged through in a blind rush for holiday bargains. One worker, Jdimytai Damour, 34, was thrown back onto the black linoleum tiles and trampled in the stampede that streamed over and around him. Others who had stood alongside Mr. Damour trying to hold the doors were also hurled back and run over, witnesses said.

Some workers who saw what was happening fought their way through the surge to get to Mr. Damour, but he had been fatally injured, the police said. Emergency workers tried to revive Mr. Damour, a temporary worker hired for the holiday season, at the scene, but he was pronounced dead an hour later at Franklin Hospital Medical Center in Valley Stream.

    Aca en el DF pasó un fenómeno opuesto: el primer día del segundo año de la pista de hielo estuvo mucho menos concurrido que el primero. No hubo hordas, pues.
