Woman Knocked Unconscious While Shopping

You gotta love a good Florida Wal-Mart trampling. If this was nearer to Ormond Beach, I would have to wonder if Stephanie were involved. She' s a Wal-Mart Pro. (She expressed great disappointment in how small our Wal-Mart is.)

ORANGE CITY, Fla.  — A mob of shoppers rushing for a sale on DVD players trampled the first woman in line and knocked her unconscious as they scrambled for the shelves at a Wal-Mart Supercenter.

Patricia VanLester had her eye on a $29 DVD player, but when the siren blared at 6 a.m. Friday announcing the start to the post-Thanksgiving sale, the 41-year-old was knocked to the ground by the frenzy of shoppers behind her.

"She got pushed down, and they walked over her like a herd of elephants," said VanLester' s sister, Linda Ellzey." I told them, ' Stop stepping on my sister! She' s on the ground!' "

Ellzey said some shoppers tried to help VanLester, and one employee helped Ellzey reach her sister, but most people just continued their rush for deals.

"All they cared about was a stupid DVD player," she said Saturday.
