Black Friday Stampede Video from Buffalo, New York Target


A crowd gunning for Black Friday sales at a Target in Buffalo pile up just inside the door, pinning people to the ground. A camera from a local television station caught the unruly scene.

A CNN affiliate WIVB had a camera inside the Target and captured the drama of the incoming crowd. Some people had cut in line, which angered the crowd. Then people at the front of the line were pushed to the floor when doors opened. The commotion and screams drew additional store staff to the entrance to stop the stampede and sort the crowd out.

No reports of any serious injuries.
