A minor girl was trapped in an escalator of a shopping mall after her dress got stuck in the moving staircase in an incident that was captured on camera.
The incident took place when the child’s family came to the shopping mall in Maddilapalem, an area in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.
The video showed a group of technical staff and family around the girl as the former take measures to drag out the trapped girl from the escalator. After efforts of more than two hours, the girl was safely rescued.
Incidents of people getting trapped in escalators have occurred previously.
In a similar incident, a woman became an unexpected hero after she saved an elderly man in a wheelchair rolling down an escalator in southwest China.
