UPDATE: 11-Year-Old Trampled At Walmart During Black Friday Rush

Posted: Updated:

DAILYTIMES: NEW BOSTON, Ohio - More details have emerged about the person who was trampled at the New Boston Wal-Mart Thursday evening. Judy Boggs, who was one of the crew members that responded to the incident for Portsmouth Ambulance, could not divulge too much information due to HIPAA laws.

"The first call came in at 7:56 p.m. that a child had been trampled at Walmart. The crew was on scene at 8:01 p.m.," Boggs said. When asked how old the child was, Boggs said she was an 11-year-old female. She could not give out the name of the child due to HIPAA laws.

"She was transported to Southern Ohio Medical Center for treatment and I believe she was later released," Boggs said. Boggs said she could not describe the extent of the child's injuries. She said a separate crew from Portsmouth Ambulance responded to the New Boston Wal-Mart for another incident Thursday evening.

"There was another patient there we transported also, for not necessarily being trampled, but it was something along those lines. This was an elderly female. The crew was dispatched on that at 8:02 p.m.," Boggs said.

She said the description of the elderly patient could not be given because the crew that responded had not, at that time, turned in their paperwork. The Daily Times sought comment on the two situations from the New Boston Wal-Mart. "We cannot discuss that. If you have any questions you would have to go through our home office," a store representative said. A call placed to Wal-Mart's Bentonville, Ark. headquarters was not immediately returned.

The New Boston Police Department, who responded to the store and confirmed early reports of a trampling victim, was not able to comment at this time. The Daily Times will continue to update the story as more information becomes available.
