“Not the first time.”

Speaking to WeirdKaya, the witness shared that the incident took place on June 5th around 4:15 pm in Mid Valley Megamall.

She mentioned that although it happened in front of her, she only saw the Crocs, and the victim was nowhere to be found.

“The mall staff arrived swiftly and told us that the victim was lucky to get away unharmed and that this has happened quite a few times,” she said.

She also mentioned that according to the staff, they have already installed notices around the escalator specifically asking people with this kind of shoes to be aware.

Netizens’ reaction

Most of the netizens pointed out that this is mainly a behavioral issue, as we should be aware of the escalator edge and be ready to step off.

“Why didn’t you lift your feet when you got there? Understandable if one got stuck, but both of them got stuck. What on earth is that person doing?”

However, some netizens also mentioned that Crocs shoes always seem to be the victims of escalators and questioned the reasoning behind it.

“When I was young, during the time when Crocs were popular, incidents like this happened frequently. There were always news reports or school notifications saying not to let children wear Crocs on escalators to prevent accidents.”

“Honestly, I don’t understand why flip-flops have a lower risk of getting caught, but there are so many cases with fully enclosed Crocs. What’s the reason behind this?”
