A Chinese woman died shockingly when a platform at the top of an escalator collapsed and she was sucked into the mechanism and mangled.

Dramatic video material released shows the woman and her young son standing on the escalator. When they reach the top and step off onto a metal platform it gives way and the woman is drawn into the mechanism. A moment before she vanishes into the machine’s innards she pushes her son to safety.

Chinese media have identified the woman as 31-year-old Xiang Liujuan.

The video shows an employee of the shopping centre trying to save her. Rescue workers took four hours to retrieve the body from the escalator.
