A 5-year-old boy sustained an injury at a shopping mall in Nagoya on Friday after his hand became trapped in an escalator.
A security guard at Mozo Wondercity in Nagoya called the emergency services at around 5 p.m. to report that a young boy was screaming in pain because his hand had become trapped in an escalator mechanism.
TBS reported that emergency workers arrived at the scene to find the boy's hand trapped in the section where the down escalator belt meets the floor. According to witnesses, it took about 20 minutes to free the boy, who sustained injuries to his right hand.
The boy went to the store with his family, although he wasn't with them when the accident occurred, TBS reported.© Japan Today
