The identities of the woman and her baby were not disclosed and management of SM Aura Premier has not released a statement about the accident.

Some social media users said the mother was at fault for what happened, saying she should have taken the elevator. Others, however, blamed the accident on the location of the SM Aura elevator.

A certain Ems Lafuente pointed out that "for a very big mall like Aura it will take you several minutes to get to the elevator and when u finally locate it, the queue is soooo long you will take your chances by taking the escalator instead."

The status of the baby who got stuck in the escalator remains unknown.
