A two-year-old toddler tragically died after a six-foot tall mirror smashed down on her head while she was trying on a pair of shoes inside a store.
Little Ifrah Siddique was trying on the footwear for size inside the Payless ShoeSource shop in Riverdale, Georgia, USA, when the tragedy struck.
Witnesses said she was with her mother who began “screaming” when the mirror fell off a wall behind her – leaving her with fatal injuries.
Paramedics rushed to the scene and rushed little Ifrah to hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
Her cousin Aqib Iftkhar told how Ifrah was standing beside her cousin Ali when the 6ft-tall mirror fell down.
He claimed that firefighters told him it was not securely fastened.
“It just happened to fall at that time,” Iftkhar told the New York Daily News .
Latisha Culpatrick was working in a premises next door to the Payless store when the tragedy struck.
“I could hear the crash and the mom screaming,” she told Fox 5 .
Ifrah’s dad Moshin Siddique spoke out over his loss, saying: “I feel dead like I am no more … that was my little girl.”
Payless said in a statement: “We are devastated by this tragic event and are fully cooperating with authorities to research and understand the nature of this accident.”
