The suspect’s action caused both son and his mother to tumble down the stairs, critically injuring the mother.

On Monday night, Assemblywoman Yuh-Line Niou tweeted the 58-year-old mother has died from her injuries. However, through translation error, the victim is on life support and is technically still “alive.”
