The escalator that allegedly malfunctioned was the one servicing the platform for passengers heading to the Putra Heights, and apparently, the woman was swallowed up by the escalator. A photo of the incident showed the woman getting pulled up from the escalator that had fallen in at the end but this has not been confirmed by the authorities.

Be careful when using escalators and make sure to pay attention when you’re using one!
