A man entering a Target store in Buffalo was trampled upon by a stampede of bargain hunters, oblivious to his cries of pain on black Friday. (via Gawker) Luckily, Keith Krantz is okay, but says he’s lucky to be alive.

Just minutes before Store Manager Ben Gregory went to open the doors at 4 a.m., 30 to 40 people had cut in line. And when the flood gates opened, the crowd got out of control.

An employee shouted, “Don’t run. Don’t run. Don’t run!”

As people rushed in to gobble up the sale items, one of the shoppers, Keith Krantz, had gotten pinned against a metal door support and then shoved from behind to the ground. He began screaming out in pain as shoppers stepped over, around, and on him. Shoppers went about their business as Keith began feeling his life might end at the Target doorway.

“At that moment, I was thinking I don’t want to die here on the ground. That’s exactly what I thought,” said Keith.

Krantz stumbled to the television section to find his brother where he practically collapsed. A lady called paramedics and he was taken to a hospital for x-rays and a CAT Scan. Thankfully, he is okay, and Target is picking up the medical bills. But who is taking care of the mental illness of people who would trample a guy to get a good deal on a flat screen?
