Girl Speaks Out About 'Black and Blue' Friday Mishap

SCIOTO COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) -- Haliegh Adkins may have gone Black Friday shopping, but she has a few black and blue memories to show for it.

"It went black for a few minutes, and when I woke back up I saw shoes stomping around me," said the 11-year-old girl from Otway, Ohio. "Stuff was going everywhere. I was kind of scared."

According to the New Boston Police Department, Haliegh was one of two people who required medical attention Thanksgiving night at the Walmart store in New Boston.

Crowds had gathered for a $49 tablet deal that started at 8 p.m., and that's when the two were injured.

"I had a feeling something was wrong," said Haliegh's mother Nikki Velazquez. "They had to put her on a stretcher with a neck brace and back board, and we went to the hospital and they did x-rays. They said she's got a lot of bruises on her body down through here and sprained ankle."

Velazquez says Walmart reps and the New Boston Police Department have contacted the family since Thursday. Her daughter was shaken, but she believes she's going to be OK."

"This was our first Black Friday/Thanksgiving Thursday shopping trip," Velazquez said. "I think after what we've been through, it will be our last. She was very, very lucky."
