Seems like there are incidents of escalators stopping suddenly... sounds so scary! Hang on to the handles when taking escalators. Keep safe, people!

many of our escalators are pretty steep and long, quite difficult to break fall if such accident happen :nailbite:

This was an incident that was making its round in the various forums about a 4-yr old boy being pushed down the escalator at AMK MRT station yesterday. Left hand was stuck in the escalator and required 18 stitches. The aunt was requesting for witness as she said that someone pushed her nephew down the escalator.

I saw it too. The whole hand is totally :censored: May not regain full use of the hand. :sad: Is this what our society is becoming : heartless and inconsiderate? Does the culprit have to push to get his/her way? :mad:

I thought the maid is with the child, not the mother?

There was another child, his brother.
