A terrifying situation unfolded Saturday morning at the Macy's on State Street in the Loop. Holiday shoppers became witnesses to a horrific accident when a young boy's foot became stuck in an escalator.
The child was rushed to Lurie Children's Hospital. The boy's age is unknown, but we do know that the boy was transported to the hospital on a trauma bypass.
Macy’s has acknowledged the incident, telling CBS in a statement:
“We are very sorry that this accident happened and are currently investigating. We continuously assess the condition of our escalators and elevators to keep compliant within the city and state codes.”
