The Traumatic Moment A Baby Falls 30 Feet From An Escalator

A grandmother drops a baby from three floors up after losing her footing going down a mall escalator.

Devastating CCTV footage from China shows a grandmother accidentally dropping the 4-month-old baby from a third-floor escalator to his death.

The tragedy happened in a Shanghai shopping mall in China, as the woman was out shopping with her infant grandson.

She lost her balance while going down an escalator as she stumbled into a gap, falling forward and leaning over the side of the handrail. She desperately tried to hold onto the boy but he slipped from her hands and fell to the ground below.

As the video comes to an end both women as well as passersby, rush down the stairs to the boy’s aid. The boy was rushed to hospital but died in the early hours of this morning.

This isn't the first time something like this has happened. In fact, escalator mishaps have become rather common in China.
