There’s A Website Called Black Friday Death Count And It Is Exactly What You Think It Is

It's a list of every Black Friday-related death and injury since 2006.

Posted on

The site includes notable Black Friday deaths like 61-year-old Walter Vance, who collapsed while at a West Virginia Target in 2011 and went ignored by other shoppers. He later was pronounced dead in a hospital.

In 2008, a shooting at a southern California Toys 'R' Us left two dead. Two men pulled guns on each other after the women they were with began fighting in the check-out line.
