Elderly Woman Trampled To Death At Supermarket

An elderly woman in Venezuela was trampled to death in a mad dash for subsidized food.

According to reports, 80-year old Maria Aguirre died and 75 others were injured after Venezuelan soldiers tear gassed a crowd of about 5,000 people outside a supermarket in Sabanetato.

Incidents like these are turning out to be common in the South American country where economy constraints have led to widespread food shortages.
