- Children were trampled as 1,000 people stormed the PEZ center field
- 9,000 eggs were laid out on three different age-bracketed sections
- But when the egg hunt started, 'parents stormed the field stealing eggs'
- One four-year-old was left 'bloody', many toddlers 'pushed into the mud'
An Easter egg hunt descended into chaos on Saturday after parents in Orange, Connecticut, stormed the field.
Children as young as four were trampled by adults in a rampage to steal buckets and grab as many of the 9,000 hidden eggs as possible from the third annual free event at the PEZ headquarters.
One four-year-old son was left 'bloody' on the sports field and a two-year-old girl was shoved into the mud, witnesses claimed.
A horrified parent described the scene as 'an angry mob of chaos' with 'not one toddler hunting for eggs' among the crowds of adults.
