The Escalator, sometimes a flesh eater…

Even the LIFT may not be safe!

Escalators: “Jaws” in supermarkets?

‘Hungry’ for human flesh? An escalator swallowed a woman and ‘chewed’ her up. In recent days, escalators have ‘swallowed’ toes and finger.

Please don’t let your child be the next victim.

SINGAPORE: The operation of an escalator at White Sands mall has been suspended after an incident involving a four-year-old girl’s right foot, the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) said on Saturday (Aug 12).

In a statement to the media, the BCA said they were alerted to the incident in Pasir Ris on the night of Aug 11. A four-year-old had gotten her shoe lodged in the escalator at around 9.30pm while she was descending from level two to level one. Her right foot was injured and she was taken to the hospital for treatment.

BCA said after its engineers inspected the escalator at 11pm that night, the gap where the shoe had been lodged was found compliant with the prevailing code requirements.

“However, in the interest of public safety, BCA will be suspending the operation of the escalator and instructing the owner to engage an Authorised Examiner (AE) to conduct further investigation into the incident,” said the authority.

The AE will also recommend repair works on the escalator where one of the steps had been misaligned due to the rescue operation, BCA added.

Girl’s foot gets stuck in White Sands mall escalator

A four-year-old girl was taken to hospital after her right foot got stuck in an escalator at the White Sands mall in Pasir Ris on Friday (Aug 11) evening.

SINGAPORE: A four-year-old girl was taken to hospital after her right foot got stuck in an escalator at the White Sands mall in Pasir Ris on Friday (Aug 11) evening.

The incident, which took place at around 9.30pm, saw the girl trapped in the escalator descending from level two to level one of White Sands, the mall’s general manager Dennis Cheong said in a statement to Channel NewsAsia.

Eyewitness Isaiah said he was eating with family and friends at Gurney Drive Signatures on level three of the shopping mall when he suddenly heard a commotion from below.

“We were eating and suddenly a kid cried out … (I) looked down and saw a kid (with her foot) stuck in between the escalator, and her mum holding on,” the 37-year-old pastor told Channel NewsAsia. “Then everyone (was) rushing to stop the escalator and help the kid.”

He said that the shopping mall’s staff members and security then attended to the girl and her mother, while a “big crowd started to form”.

What was wrong with that escalator? Sunway Pyramid reveals their findings:

The Sunway Pyramid mall management has issued an official statement today, 6 March, to update the public about the escalator mishap which caused a female shopper to suffer a bad gash on her calf.

“During investigation, findings have shown that there had been misuses to the escalator prior to the occurrence, including baby strollers and other lack of escalator etiquettes that are contributing factors to aggravating the escalator prior to the incident.”

“The Management of the mall together with OTIS and the Department of Occupational Safety & Health have examined various sources and will continue to work with the relevant authorities for further updates,” the statement read.
.

“Moving forward, Sunway Pyramid will be introducing unipoles at all escalator take-offs and landings to curb strollers, trolleys, wheelchairs or any form of similar items from the escalator.”

A unipole is usually placed at the centre of the escalator platforms to minimise the pathway, but it will not obstruct any normal being from passing through.

A young boy, who is about five years old, had the top half of his big toe severed when his rubber shoe got stuck in an escalator at the National Library in Victoria Street.

A passer-by, Mr Greg Choong, 50, said he rushed to the boy’s aid after piercing screams came from behind him.

SINGAPORE – A woman escaped injury after a step on the escalator she was riding on at The Arcade in Raffles Place broke.

An eyewitness, named only as Mrs Liu, told Chinese evening newspapers that she heard a loud bang coming from the escalator, which runs from the first to the second floor, at about 3.30pm on Tuesday (Jan 5).

Two people were riding on it – a man who had just reached the landing on the second floor, and a woman who was about three steps behind, Lianhe Wanbao reported.

While the woman was not hurt, she looked shocked and could not speak for a while, and had to be comforted by passers-by, said Mrs Liu.

A loud crash, followed by screams. Another escalator incident. But it’s not in China. It took place at a hypermarket in Penang.

Photographs of a broken travelator at the mall were shared online by a sales executive who wanted to be known only as Eileen.

The post went viral recently, reported The Star.

Eileen said she was on the other side when a piece of the machine’s metal tread fell inside the moving travelator, leaving a huge gap.

There was no one on it at the time.

“I just screamed… If I had been on that side, my leg would have gone inside the machine. I could have been seriously hurt.

“Now every time I get on a machine, I’m scared, especially after the recent accidents in China,” she said.

She also wondered if it was due to poor maintenance.

The unfortunate few were forced to run up the escalator to avoid getting grinded by the metal or stabbed in the shin at Wongsawang Town Center in Bangsue district.

Photos showing torn metal pieces and collapsed steps were shared by Thai PBS host Chonlanat Koaykul yesterday.

“The escalator collapsed and caused a loud bang. People ran into different directions because they thought it was a bomb attack,” Chonlanat said.

Fortunately, no one was injured as people on the escalator were able to run and jump off it just in time.
