The accident occurred when the boy was riding the escalator to the second story of the mall. According to reports, the boy was pulled off the escalator by a moving railing that he was holding on to. He was then thrown through a fairly large gap between the escalator and a barrier.
The boy sustained a head injury and was taken immediately to a local hospital, where he underwent surgery for his injuries. However, doctors were unable to save him, and he died shortly after.
Officials are currently investigating the accident.
