Two New Jersey parents have filed a lawsuit after their 7-year-old son lost all of his right toes in an escalator incident at the mall, claiming he was left disabled and disfigured.

The boy, who hasn't been named, was riding an escalator at Oxford Valley Mall near Langhorne, Pennsylvania, when his foot got trapped between a step and the right side skirt panel, the suit states.

Rescuers - Minutes - Hospital - Toe - Right

It took rescuers 20 to 30 minutes to free him, after which he was taken to the hospital with a partially amputated toe and skin torn off all of his right toes, NJ.com reported citing the document. Doctors had to amputate the 7-year-old's toes on his right foot and had to keep operating on his foot and leg during the next month, according to the complaint.

Parents Celestino Rivas and Maria Jimenez, of Trenton, are blaming escalator company Schindler Corporation and the Oxford Valley Mall. They say both were negligent in maintaining and repairing the escalator.

Rivas - Jimenez - Compensation - Trauma - Son

Rivas and Jimenez are now seeking compensation for the trauma their son suffered along with themselves.

The 7-year-old was on a Christmas outing to the mall with his family the day he got injured, the family's attorney Craig Hubert told NJ.com.
