The family of Jdimytai Damour, the temporary worker who was trampled to death by shoppers at the Valley Stream, Long Island, Wal-Mart on Black Friday, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the company. The lawsuit also names the Green Acres Mall and Securitas Security Services USA, the company that employed Damour.
According to the lawsuit, Damour, who was 6 feet 5 inches tall and weighed 270 pounds, may have been placed at the door because of his size. Damour had worked for the security company for only a week and had no training in crowd .
The lawsuit claims Wal-Mart “engaged in specific marketing and advertising techniques to specifically attract a large crowd and create an environment of frenzy and mayhem.” Poor planning, inadequate training and supervision and a blatant disregard for the potential hazards contributed to Damour’s death, the lawsuit says.
