A horrifying video captured a Chinese woman saving her child just before she was killed in an escalator incident.
A 30-year-old woman was reportedly killed at a department store in the Chinese city of Jingzhou on July 26 when she fell into a gap that suddenly appeared at the upper end of an escalator after a floor panel collapsed under her feet.
Surveillance footage captured the tragic moment Xiang Liujuan tried to step off the escalator with her two-year-old son just as the plate collapsed beneath them.
Xiang managed to push her son safely across the gap and into the reach of a shopping assistant just before falling into the gap created by the collapsed floor panel.
