This is one of those videos that you don’t want to see, but at the same time you not only watch it over and over again, but you share it on your facebook!
The video comes from close caption TV footage from China. It took place in the Wu Yue plaza department store Shanghai. The lady holding the baby is the child’s grandmother. The CCTV video shows the grandmother slowly stepping on the escalator while what looks like the child’s mother patiently waits for her to successfully start to ride it down.
After watching the video about 20 times, it looks like the grandmas left leg gives way causing her to turn to the right and slam into the side of the escalator. She then loses her grip on the baby and it can be seen falling.
The little girl that is with the mom, falls to her knees and miraculously holds on for dear life as she starts to fall. She is then picked up by the Grandmother.
Tragically the baby died after being rushed to the hospital. This is insane but sort of brings awareness that anything can happen at any time.
How about another shocking video but with a better outcome. This time the toddler survives which make watching this video a little easier but not less shocking. Watch the glass door come for this kid! Wow! This was also in China.
