The 59-year-old Army veteran will receive a total of $7.5 million, including $2.5 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages.

However, WP writes that Walmart plans to appeal. As Walker reached for the watermelon, his foot got stuck in the side of a wooden pallet under the display. "He turned, unaware that the pallet was there, and fell and shattered his hip".

A man has won a $7.5 million payout after falling while buying watermelons in Walmart. Walker's attorneys also rounded up surveillance footage of "several other people hav [ing] their feet caught" in pallets on Walmart produce aisles, so it seems this wasn't a one-time thing.

On consolidated basis, the company reported revenues of Rs 272.40 crore and net worth was Rs 175.80 crore. Revenue loss was more pronounced this time, given the higher share of rural subscribers.

However the company contradicted the claim and said the display was "not unsafe".

"Walmart continues to display watermelons in the same manner as it did on June 25, 2015", the company in a court filing on Wednesday. "This is a great verdict for the community because this jury wanted to make sure it was safe for shoppers".

Walmart says it's "disappointed in the verdict", believes that the damages "were excessive in light of the facts", and plans to appeal.
