Please Don’t Block the Way for Medical Teams…
If you’re not careful, Black Friday can be a dangerous time. Every year there are reports of people being injured in a rush to get bargains. In some cases, these injuries are serious enough to require medical attention. This user almost became one of those stories when one of their customers was hurt during the Black Friday scramble.
Not only was the customer pushed down, but the flock of people around them prevented the medical team from getting to them. According to the story, they had to physically push people away so they could reach the injured person.
