Wal-Mart Changes its Policies to Avoid Criminal Charges
Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. will modify its system of controlling crowds as a condition to avoiding criminal prosecution for the stampeding horde of shoppers who inadvertently trampled a man to death last Thanksgiving.
The agreement emerged as a result of Nassau County's District Attorney's office investigation into the man's death. The victim was working as a security guard at the store, and was knocked to the ground and killed by the horde.
The victim's family is also pursuing legal remedies against Wal-Mart for possible wrongful death Wal-Mart denies any wrongdoing. Wal-Mart will have safety experts review its crowd management plans.
