12/3/08 - "Tomorrow morning we will release our sales numbers for the month of November. This event is overshadowed by the tragic death of Jdimytai Damour at our Valley Stream, New York store on November 28, 2008.
"We consider Mr. Damour part of the Walmart family, and are saddened by his death. We have been in communication with members of his family to do what we can to help them through this difficult time. Our associates know that when incidents like this occur, we take care of our own.
"We will continue to work with local law enforcement officials so that together we can implement even stronger safety measures going forward."
--Hank Mullany, President, Northeast Division, Walmart U.S.
