The boy's mom left him to buy tickets, but she didn't expect that her son will be the next victim of another escalator accident in China.

CHONGQING, China-- Last Thursday morning, a 4-year old boy in the city of Chongqing perished in another escalator accident inside a metro station.

According to BBC news, the unidentified boy was playing in the handrail of the escalator when he accidentally slipped. He was stuck between the bottom handrail and the floor and his chest was wedged between the two.

Although the station staff immediately shut down the escalator, it did little to save the poor boy from the hands of death. Unfortunately, he was pronounced dead upon arrival in the hospital due to serious injuries in his chest.

The boy's mother was put under questioning and she said that she brought her 4-year old son and 3-year old daughter in the metro station. While getting tickets, she accidentally left the two unsupervised. She also claimed that she did not notice when her son wandered away to play beside the nearby escalator.

On the other hand, Chongqing Rail Transport Authority provided a statement in their Weibo account:

"We are deeply regretful and heartbroken over this case! We also would like to remind all passengers to look after their young children and old folks when travelling, be more alert, and avoid similar accidents!"

Just this year, similar deaths resulting from escalator accidents in China have also made headlines. Disturbed with these accidents, people are already raising awareness to prevent such accidents from happening again.
