Things have been quiet for a while, but photos of yet another escalator accident hit the internet again. A month earlier, a girl had her arm stuck in the escalator at a supermarket in Xiushan district on the outskirts of Chongqing. Thankfully, the victim survived and the hospital reported that she did not suffer serious injuries to her month. But not this time.
According to Shanghaiist, these images showed an escalator accident in a Metro Station at Chongqing where a child was allegedly killed at around 11am on 8 October 2015. The child’s mother and another child could be seen crying at the scene.
Not much details are known about the accident, but station personnel reportedly responded to the incident immediately and the escalator was suspended as workers made attempts to save the boy after the body was recovered.
So remember, no matter where you are, never look away from your kids at the escalator and always ride carefully!
