Two women had to be hospitalized after a Walmart deal marked $200 smartphones down to $35, resulting in another stampede. Laurie Underwood was working for a third-party security firm and was simply monitoring electronics in the store when the rush for the phones left her injured. Both she and Melinda Wishart were taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries.
Underwood said that the experience has forced her to do all of her holiday shopping from the safety of her own home.
