Boy, 4, who fell off escalator at Massachusetts mall dies


AUBURN, Mass. >> A 4-year-old boy who fell off an escalator and onto a first-floor display case at a Massachusetts mall has died.

The Worcester district attorney’s office says Mark DiBona of Dudley died Saturday night at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in Worcester.

Police are investigating the fall. The district attorney’s office says there are no signs of foul play.

Police told The Telegram & Gazette that Mark grabbed the escalator’s moving railing with both hands and flew off. He landed on a first-floor store display case and suffered a serious head injury.
