The modest store in Beersheva did not expect the overwhelming response to the ad for the tablet computer sale held on Wednesday, 3 Adar 5773, beginning at 16:00.
Well, when a store advertises a 1,000 NIS tablet computer for 10 NIS, one can expect a response and the crowd was lined up outside the store long before the doors opened at 16:00. As the doors opened the stampede began, very quickly deteriorating to an unmanageable situation. MDA was summoned to treat at least two victims, whose injuries B”H were only described as light. Police arrived as well, ordering and immediate halt to the sale.
