Mother Falls To Her Death Inside An Escalator, Manages To Save Her Son

Warning: Video contains scenes that some viewers may find upsetting.

A woman was killed after falling inside an escalator in a Chinese shopping mall.

Security camera footage of the tragic incident shows the mother saving her son's life seconds before falling to her death.

As the escalator in a shopping mall almost reaches the top, a metal panel suddenly collapses. Almost immediately, the woman struggles her upper body above the structure and manages to push her son forward.

While mall employees pull the child to safety, the woman disappears through the hole.

“Despite a four-hour rescue operation at the upscale AZG Mall in central China, firefighters declared the woman dead when they finally cut the escalator open and found her body Sunday afternoon,” CNN reported.

Investigation of the incident is underway.
