    Grapevine police catch speeding driver

    A western New York man caught at the bottom of a pile of frenzied Black Friday shoppers rushing into a department store says he thought he was going to die.

    Keith Krantz tells WIVB-TV that he waited eight hours outside the Target store in Buffalo before the doors opened at 4 a.m. Friday. Krantz was knocked down inside one of the entrances in the initial rush, causing people to pile up on him.

    Videotape shot by WIVB from inside the store shows Target employees and a fellow shopper helping the 28-year-old Krantz to his feet as people continue to barge through the doors.

    Krantz suffered minor injuries. Target says it will take steps to improve its Black Friday crowd
