Probably the worst 'stampede' incident with deaths was at in Cincinati, Ohio about 30 years ago at a The Who concert, with several killed. That lead to a prompt end to 'general seating' for music concerts throughout the USA.
I was tempted to bring that up in my earlier post but was unsure of the end response.

Side Note: the similar Cyber-Monday is today BTW and is a whole lot safer.
Right up until your identity or credit card number gets ripped off, then you might wish you were dead.
For the record, my on-line transactions are very limited AND
are not done on the so-called Cyber-Monday. Believe me, I am very skeptical of doing everything
on-line for the identity-theft reason alone. When I do an on-line purchase (mainly for airline, car rental and/or motel stays), I use just ONE credit card for that very purpose.
Back to Black Friday: This past Friday, I actually had to make a trip to a mall (North Shore Mall in Peabody, MA
) around 6:30 PM
because I needed to buy a last-minute gift card (it was for an upcoming birthday) at JC
Penney. There was only one person in line at the register I was at and I was in-and-out in no time. I, for one, was quite surprised.
