According to Australian News on the 9th, earlier this week, an Australian woman's life was getting worse. She was involved in the elevator machinery and then robbed by an unscrupulous bystander.
I watched more than 16,000 distressing scenes on YouTube depicting the woman. According to reports, she was very embarrassed by the incident and could not reveal her identity to the public. She was nailed when onlookers tried to help. On the steps.
"It's horrible. It's horrible," she said of her ordeal according to the camera. "I don't want it to happen to anyone."
When this woman and her 10-year-old nephew were shopping in a shopping mall in Surfers Paradise, a small town on the Gold Coast of Queensland, her clothes-including shirts, pants and underwear-were somehow caught in the teeth of the machine, causing her slip.
"The escalator is still moving, I screamed for help," the woman told 9News. She added that she hurt herself when she landed. In one photo, her back appeared to be severely scratched. There are deep stripes on her shoulder blades.
"I can't move. My arms are crushed. I can't stand up. I know if I don't, I will be trapped," she said.
The woman said that when her nephew went to look for the emergency stop button of the escalator, a female bystander took advantage of the situation to get rich financially. On the pretext of providing help, bystanders stole the woman's wallet, stole her credit card information, and started an online shopping boom.
"They have been used to buy alcohol takeaways and takeaways," the woman said.
The woman was finally rescued by paramedics, took her off her clothes, and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. Seven hours later, when she returned to the mall to pick up the car, she found that she had been fined a parking ticket. She said the mall management refused to waive the fee and had stopped answering her calls.
"So far, I have not received any response," she said.
However, the mall management told 9News that they have offered to compensate the woman.
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, elevators and escalators directly or indirectly cause 30 deaths and 17,000 injuries in the United States each year. In 2015, according to a report by ABC 30, a 30-year-old Chinese woman died after being involved in an escalator in Jingzhou City.
