A Wal-Mart worker is dead and a pregnant woman recovering from injuries following a Black Friday shopper stampede.

Cell phone video from the scene is below, along with a news report from moments after the trampling. More Wal-Mart stampede video follows beneath that. Please be advised that some of the images may be disturbing.

This video, from another Wal-Mart location on a Black Friday morning, shows just how intense and chaotic major retailers' opening moments can become as eager shoppers rush into the opening doors.

Wal-Mart's official statement on the Long Island Black Friday death calls it a "tragic situation."

"The safety and security of our customers and associates is our top priority," the company says.
