The 35-year-old recent amputee, who has been identified as Zhang, was mopping the escalator rails when the tragedy took place. Although the escalator stopped after he got stuck, the injuries were too severe for the doctor to save his leg.

The cause of the accident has been deemed a “misoperation of the escalator,” according to the manager of the shopping mall. However, Zhang says the escalator was still in operation before he managed to press the button himself to stop it. Police are still investigating the case.


A total of three fatal accidents involving escalators were recorded in China last week, spreading feelings of fear, anxiety and outrage over safety protocols in China.

There have been 74 escalator accidents recorded in China during the first half of 2015, leading to 73 deaths and 82 injuries, according to China’s quality control authorities. It also said that among the 2.3 million registered elevators and escalators in China, over 110,000 of them have safety problems.
