Three people have been hurt in a hatchet attack at a Walmart in East Texas and police arrested a transient on assault charges.
PIKEVILLE, Ky. - A video trending on YouTube apparently shows workers at a Kentucky Walmart store throwing and damaging new Apple iPads.
The video has been watched more than 226,000 times since it was posted Thursday.
The person who posted the video under the account "Anon Ymous" added this description: "Employees at a Pikeville, KY Walmart filmed themselves purposefully damaging iPads."
The person running the camera introduces the video by saying, "This is why you don't buy an iPad from Walmart."
In the 48-second clip, the boxes sound like they are hitting the ground hard, possibly damaging what is inside.
A manager at the store told television station WSAZ-TV that "we have taken care of it."
A Walmart spokesperson released the following statement Friday evening:
"We've seen the video of several nightshift associates destroying merchandise in the back of one of our stores in August and, as anyone can image, it made us wince. We are also embarrassed.
"The associates involved no longer work for Walmart.
"Since this unfortunate incident, we haven't received any returns of this merchandise. We stand behind our merchandise and our associates work very hard to take proper care and handling of the products we put on our shelves."
