    I’ve seen this happen before. It happens when you jam your foot up against the tread Infront of the one you are standing on. You have to TRY to do it.

    It could have just been an accident, don’t make a drama out of it Stan.

      He’s right… you have to have the tips of your shoes right at or slightly over the end of the “step” you are on and kind of help the tips get caught (by angling the front edge of the shoes downward). It’s not easy to do without wanting to.

        So you guys and Gals were there and witnessed it, did you? This was a child, I cannot for the life of wonder why in the split second they did it deliberately.

        But this site and some of you people loves the drama, doom and gloom.

      Maybe one foot is an accident, but both feet??? Was Mom not watching him? Was he not paying attention? Escalators are dangerous. Parents need to mind their children to make sure they enter and exit safely!

    Flip flops I can understand but surprised it was a pair of crocs

    I’m not the sharpest tack in the box, but was just there, racking my brain, but can’t figure out where this escalator is…can someone enlighten me…TIA

    There is absolutely no reason that the kid had to walk across Epcot to get to the store. The article says they are with family, so why doesn’t mom go quickly and grab a pair at the store while the others wait for her? Or see if there is a temp wheelchair lying around (sometimes there is nearby where cast members can grab one) and push him to the store so he can pick out new ones. No need for drama!
    Plus always watch your kids tiny feet one escalators…doesn’t only happen at Disney and even sneakers can get caught.

      So she could make the little video to post on TikTok or whatever social media to make her look good and make people feel sorry and then give her a few minutes of fame. If she did what you suggest then she wouldn’t get all the likes.

    My daughters converse got stuck in the escalator coming from the parking garage at Disney springs
