As usual, mayhem and chaos surrounded Black Friday, as brawls broke out across the US. In Great Bend, Kansas, a group of men fought over the last Fischer Price “power wheel”, before a security guard intervened and told them none of them could buy the toy. Two people were stabbed with box cutters in two separate incidents.
Perhaps the scariest incident was when glass smashed at Westfield Annapolis Mall in Maryland. Shoppers mistook the sound for gunshots and began to panic, rushing for the exits as they feared a gunman was inside the mall. Police were called and the mall had to be shut down temporarily, before reopening to let the madness of Black Friday continue.
