The woman aged 30 managed to push her two-year-old boy to safety at the top of the escalator before she fell into the machinery, the Wuhan Evening News reported. Surveillance video at the shopping mall in Jingzhou shows the woman holding her son as she prepares to get off the escalator when a footplate collapses under her feet.

Stuck in the hole and with only her upper body above the structure, she pushed her son forwards and he was caught by a shopping assistant standing near the top of the escalator. The woman fell beneath the floor only a few seconds later after another shopping assistant tried to grab her arm and failed.

The South China Morning Post has not published the video as some readers might find it disturbing. Relatives said the woman, who was only identified by her surname Xiang, was shopping with her husband on Sunday when the accident happened. The husband was walking behind her wife and son and had yet to take the escalator from the fifth to the sixth floor, the newspaper reported.

An unnamed sourced was quoted as saying that the accident was probably caused by workers failing to tighten screws on a footplate in the escalator during maintenance.  The shopping mall has yet to make a formal statement about the accident. It took rescuers nearly four hours to recover the body of the woman, according to the newspaper.

Twelve people were injured last year after an escalator on the subway in Shanghai started going backwards. One boy was killed in a similar accident on Beijing’s subway in 2011 when an escalator went into reverse.

JINGZHOU, KOMPAS.com — Peristiwa tragis terjadi di Anliang Department Store di kota Jingzhou, Hubei, China. Xiang Liujuan tewas “tertelan” eskalator setelah menyelamatkan putranya dari maut yang sudah di depan mata.

Kantor berita AFP, Senin (27/7/2015), melaporkan, ibu berusia 30 tahun itu sedang menggandeng si anak menaiki eskalator. Namun, ketika sudah mencapai pengujung eskalator, tiba-tiba saja panel eskalator itu terbuka sehingga mengakibatkan perempuan itu kehilangan keseimbangannya.

Saat mulai terjatuh, dia segera mendorong putranya ke depan yang kemudian segera diselamatkan petugas toko yang sedang berdiri. Petugas toko itu pun mencoba untuk menolong Xiang. Namun, eskalator itu terus bergerak. Xiang akhirnya lepas dari tangan petugas toko itu dan menghilang ditelan mesin tangga berjalan tersebut.

Petugas pemadam kebakaran yang datang memerlukan waktu lebih dari empat jam untuk membuka mesin eskalator itu. Namun, mereka menemukan perempuan itu sudah tidak bernyawa lagi.

Investigasi menunjukkan, perbaikan baru saja dilakukan di eskalator itu dan rupanya teknisi lupa untuk menormalkan kembali fungsinya.

Kecelakaan itu pun menimbulkan kehebohan di China, terutama di media sosial Sina Weibo, semacam Twitter versi China. Sudah ada lebih dari 6,6 juta netizen yang menonton video kejadian itu. Kecaman pun bermunculan terhadap manajemen pusat perbelanjaan itu.

“Mengapa teknisi tidak memasang papan peringatan, menghentikan perempuan itu ketika berjalan ke eskalator, atau mematikan eskalator tersebut,” komentar seorang netizen.

Netizen lain terharu oleh tindakan terakhir si ibu yang menyelamatkan anaknya. “Saya sangat shock melihat dia terjatuh, tetapi pada saat bersamaan juga melihat kasih seorang ibu yang tanpa basa-basi segera menyelamatkan putranya terlebih dahulu.”
