An Apple store shopper in Bethesda, MD was seriously hurt on Monday when one of the store's massive glass doors came unhinged and fell on him.

According to blog Bethesda Now, "the adult male patient was taken to a local hospital with serious, believed to be non-life threatening injuries." The store remained open afterward. Someone claiming to be a friend of the injured party took to Reddit to post a photo of the incident, saying that the man's pelvis was crushed by the door and that Apple "hasn't made any attempts to get in touch with him." That was yesterday.
