I have always been wary of escaltors and now I have a reason. A Chinese woman died after being trapped in a shopping mall escalator, but not before pushing her 2-year-old son to safety. This is like a nightmare scene from Final Destination. The woman — identified in media reports as 30-year-old Xiang Liujuan — is shown reaching the top of the escalator when the section of landing platform she had stepped onto suddenly collapses. Her body was recovered 4 hours later!
