As they reach the top of the escalator, she lifts up her son to get ready to get off. But as she does, the metal panel collapses under her feet and she falls into the gap.

She is seen lifting her son up whereas a mall employee who was standing near the escalator quickly helps and pulls the child to safety.

After that, two more employees try to pull the mother out, but she is quickly seen disappearing through the hole. According to reports, the woman's name was Xiang Liujuan.

Rescuers found her dead despite the four-hour rescue operation at the AZG Mall in Central China.
