Watch this horrifying video of an unattended young boy was playing with the handrail of an escalator, and ended up nearly losing his life.

Safety tips to take note of:

1. Always hold on to your child’s hand. Have your kid face forward the whole time when standing on a moving escalator.

2. No play on board. Tell them to avoid the edge of the steps, and never let them play or sit on the steps.

3. Watch your kids like a hawk. Your kid may be tempted to get a little cheeky by sitting down, facing backwards or even picking up objects that may have fallen. This could be a disaster waiting to happen, so stay alert.
