Death in Wal-Mart During Tornado in Missouri

Suit Filed Over Death in Walmart During Tornado

The death of a Missouri man in a Joplin, Mo., Walmart during a 2011 tornado has prompted a lawsuit from the family against the retail giant and the local store manager. The suit claims the man was not allowed to leave the store after tornado sirens sounded and that patrons were taken to an "unsafe/improper location." The suit also claims store and company officials did not have a proper emergency plan in place and should have known the store was built in "an area that was at high risk for tornadoes and violent winds."
