A technician has suffered extensive injuries after falling into a moving escalator he was in the process of repairing and having to be pulled out.
He was reportedly repairing the device in Beibei District of Chongqing, a major city in south-west China, when he accidentally fell into the escalator.
The outdoor escalator was stopped just in time as the worker was sucked into its moving parts, and local firefighters were called to free the man from within the machinery as hundreds of terrified shoppers gathered around to watch the drama unfold

Perhaps he should look for the electric isolation switch next time he tries a repair.
