HONOLULU (AP) — A Texas couple is suing footwear maker Crocs and a Waikiki resort after their 2-year-old son’s foot got caught in an escalator while the family visited Hawaii in 2014 for an oral surgeon convention.

The lawsuit says the Crocs shoes were “negligently and improperly designed,” while the Hilton Hawaiian Village was also negligent in maintaining the escalator’s safety.

According to the lawsuit, the escalator “completely de-gloved” the toddler’s left foot, requiring emergency surgery.

A Honolulu attorney representing the shoe company known for its colorful plastic clogs didn’t respond to a phone message seeking comment. Hilton representatives also didn’t immediately return messages.

The lawsuit says Crocs knew as early as 2008 that children suffered severe injuries when the shoes got trapped in small spaces on escalators.
