watermelon

A shopper in Alabama who tripped and broke his hip while buying a watermelon at a Walmart has won a $7.5 million verdict against the retailer.

Henry Walker of Phenix City, Alabama was awarded the damages earlier this week after a jury trial. Walker had sued Walmart, saying his foot got trapped in a pallet beneath the watermelons as he reached for one at the Phenix City Walmart in June 2015.
