Court records state Walker was visiting the Phenix City Walmart, located at 3700 Highway 280, in June 2015. Walker reached for a watermelon in a container, but tripped and his foot got stuck in a wooden pallet on the floor. He fell and suffered several injuries, including a broken hip.
According to one of Walker's attorneys Shaun O'Hara, the watermelon container was on top of the pallet and wasn't visible when Walker had to reach inside for his fruit. Walker did not step on the wood, but his foot slid in a side opening on the pallet. When he tried to turn towards his buggy, Walker's foot got stuck and he fell.
Jurors viewed security footage from the Walmart store and saw several other people have their feet caught in the side opening of the pallet, O'Hara said.
