Kuala Lumpur, Friday, 24 January 2019 – It was a long weekend with a festive mood; many people were doing their shopping with family and friends. The incident where a toddler in a baby stroller was riding on the escalator at KWC Fashion Wholesale on 21 January 2019, has raised public awareness of such dangers. It was fortunate that nobody was injured during this incident.

KWC Management has investigated the cause of the incident and has come to the conclusion that the primary cause was due to the type of baby stroller used – a tricycle baby stroller, where the rubber wheel is smaller and softer than standard typical baby stroller, thus causing it to get jammed.

KWC Fashion Wholesale would like to take this opportunity to advise its patrons to use precaution when using the escalators. For their children’s safety, we strongly recommended that parents with children in baby strollers should not use the escalators, but instead either use the lift, or fold up the baby stroller and carry the child in their arms if using the escalator.

KWC Fashion Wholesale hopes that all shoppers will continue to enjoy their shopping while taking these safety precautions into consideration.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
