An 11 year old child was reportedly trampled at the New Boston, OH Walmart Thanksgiving night.

According to Judy Boggs of the Portsmouth Ambulance service, the call came in shortly before 8 p.m. to the 911 center in New Boston.  When she and a second paramedic arrived on scene, they were told the female child had been pushed down and then stepped on by shoppers inside the store. Boggs said the child was transported to an area hospital and later released.

A second incident involving an elderly woman was also reported to the 911 center around the same time. Boggs said she believed the elderly woman was also the victim of a similar incident. It is unclear the extent of the elderly woman's injuries, according to Boggs.

The New Boston police also responded to the scene. The investigation is continuing at this time.
