A mother carrying shopping bags, a stroller and her 1-year-old baby died on Monday after falling down a flight of stairs in a NY subway station, officials said.

It was not immediately clear whether the 22-year-old Ms Goodson had a medical issue that precipitated her death or whether she died from impact.

Her daughter, Rhylee, was found conscious, strapped in her pram, and was treated at the scene.

Goodson's death drew wide attention Tuesday.

Here's what you need to know.

Goodson's death remains under investigation and an autopsy will later determine her exact cause of death.

Malaysia Goodson was found unconscious and unresponsive at the bottom of the southbound 7th Avenue B, D and E station stairs just before 8 p.m. Officials told WNBC-TV that the stairs and the railing appeared to have been in good condition.

Police said she was clutching the stroller.

Malaysia Goodson entered a Manhattan subway station on Monday night pushing a stroller. He says family meant everything to her and she was very protective. "I don't know what to do". "She was my best friend". She was not seriously injured and is with family.

Goodson's Facebook page describes her as 'a mommy to a handsome little girl'.

Additionally, detectives say they did not find any marks on Goodson's body that would suggest she sustained any serious injuries from the fall.

Only about a quarter of New York City's 472 subway stations have elevators, and the elevators that do exist are often out of service.

Shams Tarek, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Transport Authority (MTA), said it was a "heartbreaking tragedy".

The station where the accident occurred does not have an elevator and only has one escalator going up. This will be accomplished through the addition of up to 50 elevators over the next five years. "Washington's [D.C.'s] subway, which was built in the 1970s and is much smaller than New York's, has far more elevators".

"That's terrifying, and there should be more elevator access in the subways", Upper West Side resident Elisa Caref told CBS New York. A group of disability advocates filed suit in 2016. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said at the time that there was "no justification" for failing to abide by regulations of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help pay for the little girl's education. Her daughter survived the fall. She worked for about a year at a day care center in Stamford, and loved it. "She is gone way too soon but will never be forgotten".

Malaysia Goodson, 22, of Stamford, Conn., was enjoying a shopping trip to Midtown Manhattan when the tragic incident unfolded, according to The New York Times. It will remain to be seen whether the rhetoric will lead to actual change in the city's public transporation system.

Mayor de Blasio issued a statement about the matter.

New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson also expressed his condolences in a tweet.
