Ifrah Siddique was just like any other two year old girl.

‘Everybody was crowded around the door. It was just tragic.’

‘I’m sure the mom didn’t think when she was coming in to go shopping she wouldn’t come out with her child. That’s bad. Really bad.’

Culpatrick, who is a mother herself, said she saw blood and assumed the child had a seizure.

The Siddique family has asked that the store ensure shelves and mirrors are secure to prevent another tragedy like this one.

Payless said the company is ‘devastated’ about the girl’s death in a statement to Fox 5.

‘Our deepest sympathies go out to the family of Ifrah Siddique during this time of incredible loss,’ the statement read.

‘We are devastated by this tragic event and are fully cooperating with authorities to reach and understand the nature of this accident. Out of respect for the family, no further information will be provided at this time.’
