Little girl survives two-storey fall after horror escalator accident

CCTV footage captured the moment a five-year-old girl in Russia plunges two stories from an escalator in a shopping mall.

In the clip, Linara can be seen playing with the escalator handrail from the bottom level, as her aunt checks her cell phone near by in the Sunny shopping centre in the Russian city of Novy Urengoy.

As Linara lets the moving rail feed through her hands, she suddenly gets swept off her feet. Her aunt realises immediately and dashes to her aid, grabbing hold of her niece's hand.

But she loses her grip on the child, and the girl tumbles onto the floor below.

Fortunately, little Linara was not seriously hurt, but she is reported to have fainted with shock.

She sustained minor cuts and bruises and is expected to make a full recovery.
