A cleaner has lost a foot after he became jammed in an escalator in China. In this incident, two people were seen jumping from the top of the escalator seconds before the cleaner reached the top with his mop. Just after he steps on to the top platform of the stairway, some of the steps appear to give way and he slips, his left foot becoming wedged in the gap that opens up. Emergency service took about 20 minutes to free him. Doctors at a local hospital tried to save his foot but were unable to and had to amputate.
