A woman who works in a store next door says she heard the screams and ran over to help and saw the child’s lifeless body under the mirror.
I just saw blood and the little girl, but she was just laying there lifeless,” La Tisha Tultaick said.
The young girl was taken to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
According to the child’s mother, the girl died of internal bleeding.
The company has since released a statement sending their condolences to the family and said they are working with authorities to find out exactly what happened:
“Our deepest sympathies go out to the family of Ifrah Siddique during this time of incredible loss. We are devastated by this tragic event and are fully cooperating with authorities to research and understand the nature of this accident.”
It is unclear if the family will file a lawsuit against the company.
