FOUR YEAR OLD SEVERELY INJURED IN ESCALATOR FALL IN INDIA


four-year-old boy fell from the sixth to the third floor between an escalator and staircase at a textile showroom in a neighborhood in Chennai, India, on January 24, The Times of India reports. He was hospitalized with severe injuries to his head and legs. While the boy's mother was shopping, he ran off to play near the escalators, stepping on and falling through a piece of plywood that had been installed between the escalator and staircase to temporarily close the gap. After the incident, showroom managers permanently fixed the gap with concrete.
