Those 2 workers are dumb asf. They should have stopped the woman from crossing knowing that there’s a problem. Tbh I would fire those guys for not doing their job properly

The girls are dummies not the mom but the girls at the top of the escalator because they have no warning that there is a broken platform

Ok the reason why the women die 1 . The creator of that escalator didn’t even screwed the 2nd panel. 2. The employee didn’t even stop the escalator or even go down the escalator and warn the people that the escalator is dengerous. 3. While the Mother carry the toddler. She could have step on the 1st panel then jump over the 2nd panel which is the loss panel then step the 3rd panel

the escalator was traveling up, the bottom could have had a barrier placed there, it could have bn switched OFF, for jobs like this you need time served apprentices, even so it. is a gross slice of negligence on the part of the buildings work ethics.. some heads should have rolled for this poor set of negative actions..

How to warn people of a death trap; Wait at the entrance. How not to warn people of a death trap; Wait at the exit.

@Please don't mind my really long name, thank you. Why not take the stairs while one waits at top? The only she fell in is cause she threw the baby over. Sad the child had to witness that.

They were probably too scared to go back down the other side, I would be too

Stupid bitches should have turned off the escalator, or at least warned people not to use it, instead of staying on top telling people it was broken when they were already on it. Fucking retards

Sure, they "tried" to warn her. There was a 5 minute gap between them discovering that the floor was unsafe and the mother and child coming up. There are emergency buttons to turn off escalators. So, why didn't they just do that instead of just standing there.. Poor dad at the bottom just watches his wife get sucked in.. That's awful..

They yelled at her not to come up but she did anyways. So they stood there to help her over it but sadly it didn't work :(

"Minutes later, Xiang and her toddler appear at the bottom of the escalator, which the workers never thought to halt. The Los Angeles Times reports by way of local media that a worker told Xiang to "jump over" the faulty panel; Xiang picks up the child and steps over the first panel but onto the loose one-the second one-and falls into the machinery." Makes me fucking sick. They told this woman to JUMP OVER the pit of death. that's it. JUMP OVER it. Let's not turn off the machine and get you to walk back to the bottom. No way. Pick up your child and jump over it. ???????????????????????

i think than the two employees dont die because they make a balance in the plataform, and the poor mother die cuz she was one only weigh. sorry my bad english

When the problem was known, the two employees should have told the operators to stop the escalator. This could have been prevented easily.

They could've literally pressed ONE button on the escalator itself to stop it 🤦🏻🤦🏻 they were probably just curious to see what would happen

Mall employees look on gawking and yelling the Chinese equivalent of "She Dead!" Yeah they need to be put up again the wall, so to the maintenance crew that forgot to screw the panel back in, as well as the manufacture, a lot of heads need to roll frankly, thankfully this is china: heads will actually roll for this.

@Alison Lekarev​ yea i thought they all did but i dont see a panel for one but it isnt a good graphics video. yea that's the other issue. There should of been one down at the bottom and one at the top. To be like..please don't go up there. The mother should of also been like no...I'm not going up there when they tell me no. Like I feel soooo bad for her because the way they describe her death and her child was right there to see it. man..I had someone die in front of me but they went peacefully. Just imagine how he is going feel

I thought they all had them? Anyway, a horrible and preventable accident, nonetheless. :( Yes, they should have roped it off or just stopped it altogether. No point in relying on people to hear them. I mean what if they were deaf?
Miso_Soup!Go 3 years ago
@Alison Lekarev That's why she picked her toddler up a bit because they told her it was broken up here. Idk if they have those buttons in China :/ I wish they would of rope it off so NO ONE would have went up there
Alison Lekarev
Alison Lekarev 3 years ago
They could have hit the button to turn it off! She was concentrating on her toddler. Probably didn't hear them.

They yelled at her not to come up and told her the escalator was in need of maintenance but she still came up. They were standing there to grab her or help her over the panel
konprb 4 years ago
It might actually be that the warning that they gave contributed to the accident. The additional weight from carrying her son slowed her down and made the plates open easier.

@Chris Hong who cares who said it first. The important thing is- the accident was preventable on so many levels yet a woman lost her life and a kid left orphaned
