KUALA LUMPUR: A five-year-old girl fell five floors to her death at the Kenanga Wholesale City mall on Friday.
Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department director Khiruddin Drahman said the unidentified girl was found sprawled on the basement.
Prior to the tragedy, the victim was spotted near an escalator with her parents and sibling in the 3pm incident.
"They were ready to climb it (escalator) when she slipped and fell through a gap between the escalator and the rail.
"At that time, her mother was holding another baby, while the victim was left on her own.
“She died on the spot after falling,” Khiruddin said.
“Investigation is still ongoing. We will check whether the mall has adhered to safety regulations,” he added.
