This tragic accident happened in the Wu Yu Plaza department store in Shanghai, China, on November 11th. A grandmother, her grandchildren, and her daughter and mother to the children were getting on an escalator that was apparently in power save mode, which means when someone steps onto the escalator it speeds up. When the grandmother who was holding her four month old grandson stepped onto the escalator, it sped up and she lost her balance dropping the baby 30 feet to the ground. The baby was listed in critical condition but died this morning(November 13th). I can’t even imagine how the grandmother feels. I doubt she will ever get over it.
