At Anliang Department Store in Jingzhou, Hubei province, China, a mother and her son fell into escalator shaft when the platform under them collapsed. As she was being chewed up by the gears that power the escalator, the woman managed to push her child to safety. She was crushed to death.
The woman was 30 year old. Her son – not yet three. The incident happened on Sunday, July 26, 2015. Escalators in China are evil.
