Shanghai man’s leg gets amputated in escalator accident
Another horrific #escalator accident occurred in #China, where a cleaner at a shopping mall in Shanghai had to have the bottom of his left leg amputated after it was stuck in an escalator late Saturday.The 35-year-old recent amputee, who has been identified as Zhang, was mopping the escalator rails when the tragedy took place. Although the escalator stopped after he got stuck, the injuries were too severe for the doctor to save his leg.The cause of the accident has been deemed a “misoperation of the escalator,” according to the manager of the shopping mall. However, Zhang says the escalator was still in operation before he managed to press the button himself to stop it. Police are still investigating the case. A total of three fatal accidents involving escalators were recorded in China last week, spreading feelings of fear, anxiety and outrage over safety protocols in China.Last Sunday, surveillance footage of a woman in Hubei Province falling to her death through a loose panel on an escalator was published online, and instantly went viral. Two days later, a toddler had his arm dragged into an escalator at a mall in Guangxi. On Thursday, a woman also fell to her death in an elevator accident in Zhejiang. The ripple effect of tragedies like this has also led to paranoid commuters anxiously stepping around the top of escalators, worrying that they might be the next victim. There have been 74 escalator accidents recorded in China during the first half of 2015, leading to 73 deaths and 82 injuries, according to China’s quality control authorities. It also said that among the 2.3 million registered elevators and escalators in China, over 110,000 of them have safety problems.
