Good work escalator kid-catch fella!
The picture quality isn’t great but here’s some alarming footage from a Turkish shopping mall. At about one minute in, the Some daft-arse kid who has been mucking about gets stuck on the escalator’s hand rail and before he knows it, he’s whizzing his way up to the top of the thing.
Luckily, a shopkeeper gets wind of what is happening and rushes out to catch the errant urchin as he falls to his near-certain death. Give the man a balloon AND a badge for his efforts.
