Walmart employee dies during fight at store

A 35-year-old woman died Sunday afternoon while on the job at a Muskegon-area Walmart store.
Nov 26, 2013

Police were called to the store on Henry Street in Roosevelt Park about a fight at about 3:30 p.m. Dispatchers then received a second call that an employee was down. 

The woman was taken to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead, Roosevelt Park police said.

Police said they have reviewed surveillance tapes that show the fight started outside and moved inside the store. No employees were involved in the fight.

Police said the video also shows the female employee was moving toward the fight when she collapsed. Police said the woman did not make any physical contact with those involved in the fight.

No one was arrested in the fight.

An autopsy is being performed to determine the cause of death. The woman's name was not released.


Tri-cities realist

Misleading headline, not inaccurate though. Good journalism these days I guess. Grab the readers attention, and that's it.


The headline is rather deceptive, don't you think? She was not in a fight.


But she did die "during" the fight at the store, not while participating but during; seems accurate and you couldn't wait to read it. It could read, Man Eats Lunch While Wal-Mart Employee Dies During a Fight at the Store; hey, I had a late lunch.

Back to the Wall

My paternal grandpa died during the Endeavour 10 space shuttle flight.
My maternal grandpa died during childbirth.


"My maternal grandpa died during childbirth"

Say What?!!?
