    Three Wal-Mart employees in Florida have been arrested in connection with the death of a suspected shoplifter.

    Police say Kenneth Wisham, 64, tried to steal nearly $400 worth of DVDs from the Lakeland store in February when store workers confronted him, according to WFLA.

    Wisham ran but had trouble keeping his pants up, eventually causing him to trip and fall to the ground, police said. The Wal-Mart employees held him down until police could arrive, but Wisham stopped breathing.

    When the workers noticed he wasn’t breathing, they began to perform life-saving measures as they waited for authorities to arrive, according to the Tampa-area television station.

    The man was rushed to an area hospital where he later died.

    An autopsy found Wisham’s cause of death to be mechanical asphyxia due to restraint. The Medical Examiner’s report also found that he had 15 broken ribs.

    Three Walmart employees have been charged in his death – Nathan Allen Higgins, a 35-year-old support manager; Crucelis Nunez, a 23-year-old customer service manager; and Randall Eugene Toko a 58-year-old loss-prevention specialist.

    Wal-Mart issued the following statement Friday:

    “Our hearts go out to everyone affected by these events. The status of the associated involved continues to be reviewed. We’ll continue working with law enforcement officials, as we have from the beginning, while conducting our own review.”

    I wouldn't break a sweat trying to stop thievery if I was unfortunate enough to work in retail.

    They grabbed him, threw him to the ground, jumped on him, crushed his ribcage, and he suffocated.

    If one of those DVDs was The Cobbler w/ Adam Sandler, death is less painful.

    Youd think they'd strap a belt on when they're going into a situation that would have them running.
