A horrifying accident involving a grandmother and a baby boy recently happened in China. The incident transpired at the Wu Yue Plaza department store, which is located in the Qingpu district of Shanghai.
CCTV footage taken from the third floor of the Wu Yue Plaza department store shows the elderly woman carrying a baby at around 2:30 p.m. that day. The elderly woman is followed by a younger woman — presumably the baby’s mother. The younger woman also has a toddler walking beside her.
Reports say that the escalator happened to be on power-saving mode. That means, it would only move once somebody gets on it. When the grandmother stepped on the escalator to go down, that’s when things went horribly wrong.
The baby was reportedly brought to the hospital for treatment. Unfortunately, he later died from his injuries. The reports said that he fell from a height of about 30 feet.
It happened in a split second.
