外文标题：Third escalator accident in China, man's leg amputated
BEIJING: A cleaner at a mall in China's financial hub Shanghai had his leg amputated as it got stuck in an escalator, less than a week after a woman was killed in a similar tragedy, sparking concerns over the safety of users.
The lower left leg of the cleaner was amputated after the escalator collapsed during the weekend
It was the third such accident in a week, sparking concerns over the safety of over 2.4 million escalators currently being used in China.
Industry insiders said it's dangerous to clean the escalator while in operation and should be banned.
Last Monday, 30-year-old woman died when the an escalator collapsed at a store in Hubei province. She managed to save her son but was "swallowed" by the escalator's machinery.

Chinese materials & Indian Communists have no guarantee, they can ditch any time
Made in China , particularly Electrical operated Equipments are dangerous for human kind...Their cheaper toys are OK to use....Pakistan may not be able to use most of Chinese Defense equipments in case of war.
Chinese toys are dangerous because potentially harmful chemicals and plastics are are used in manufacturing those toys. Think of their most sophisticated drones. They too refuse to fly. Pakistani rangers now having nightmares seeing those drones.
Just curious: why do you people buy so much from China that it has become your largest exporting country? It is also the largest exporter to most develoedc nations in the world, can't these rich nations avoid buying such products? Btw, where was the product (or its components) you use to type your comment made?

Chinese product are like this . The concern is that we in India are using thiese cheap chinese products in various malls.
Actually, life is the cheapest commodity in China for more than 100 years. In China
China products are not only bad in other countries., they are bad in their own country too !
I hope the Chinese don't blame this on India. Their cheaply manufactured goods are now showing true results.
china has cheap labor and cheaper equipment production cost hence the safety norms are tossed in dustbin...
Quality of chinese engineering.
Check the quality of your Laptop..
Desktop. Made in India.
Made in China. Even their fighter planes fall out of sky.
One day the same will happen with chinees subs that pak is in the process of acquiring...

China says "thank you" for making it your country's biggest exporting nation. Lol
These two incidents within a week speaks volumes about the safety standards in China. All construction projects done by the Chinese in India should be thoroughly inspected for safety.
Anything which you find hopeless in quality for electronics and machneries, know for sure that it is MADE IN CHINA.
Still less scary, imagine chinese Airliners, missiles and Chinese GPS for navigation
Why isn't porkistan importing these escalators and elecators?

This is what Chinese products are all about, and it is better that their operation is stopped and people allowed to climb the stairs in their own safety. More such accidents will ruin China's image and hurt its business interests all over the world. Indian operators also will do well to take precautionary measures before Chinese accidents get repeated in India.
