Miserable! A child was caught in an escalator in Guangzhou.

At around 6 pm on the 28th, in the Guangbai Department Store on Nonglinxialu, Guangzhou, a child was accidentally caught in the escalator of the mall and cried out in pain. After receiving the alarm, the local police and firefighters immediately rushed to the rescue.

Mr. Zhu, an eyewitness at the scene, said that at about 6 p.m. that day, he went to the third floor of Guangbai Department Store to pick up the child from get out of class and found an escalator full of people. "A woman (unable to confirm whether it was the child's mother or grandmother) squatted beside the escalator with the child in her arms, and the child cried loudly because his foot was stuck. Someone next to him immediately called the police."


After a while, police and firefighters rushed to the scene to start the rescue. The matter was quickly settled and the child was immediately sent to the hospital.

At about 8 o'clock in the evening, a reporter from the Yangcheng Evening News rushed to the scene and saw that the elevator had been shut down, the surroundings had been surrounded, and there were still some cordon on the scene. Staff prohibit irrelevant personnel shooting and onlookers.


During the visit, the reporter found that because there are several training institutions upstairs, there are more children and parents going in and out. A woman surnamed Chen said that she would definitely lead the child when she got up and down the elevator: "I dare not be careless. There is no regret medicine to take if something happens."

Guangbai Department Store responded to the Yangcheng Evening News reporter that there was no problem with the quality of the elevator. After checking the video, the accident was caused by the child's improper use of the elevator.

"But due to the accident in the mall, Guangbai has paid for the child's diagnosis and treatment in the hospital, and he is not in serious trouble." The person in charge of Guangbai Department Store said that insurance companies would follow up the matter.

Safety experts suggest that parents should educate their children on how to properly ride an elevator and how to respond in the event of an elevator accident.

In particular, children under the age of 5 should try not to wear shoes or sandals with soft materials when taking the escalator. Wearing these shoes is easy to be involved in the escalator, and after being involved, the safety device of the elevator may not be able to start in time to stop the elevator.

At the same time, parents had better let their children stand in front of their bodies and hold the children tightly, which is safer.
