Girl fell af­ter dad pan­icked

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

GE­ORGE TOWN: The father of a three-year-old girl who fell from an es­ca­la­tor at a shop­ping mall in Bukit Jam­bul on Sun­day had his at­ten­tion di­verted from his daugh­ter as he was try­ing to help his son, whose fin­ger was caught on the es­ca­la­tor.

The father pan­icked while help­ing his son, and for­got his daugh­ter was on his shoul­ders, caus­ing her to fall.

Closed-cir­cuit tele­vi­sion camera footage of the 6.40pm in­ci­dent showed the boy play­ing on the es­ca­la­tor with a bal­loon stick. The boy tripped and got his fin­ger stuck while the mother stum­bled while try­ing to help him.

Po­lice said the girl was still un­con­scious but “there was some move­ment of her fin­gers”. – by Ed­mund Lee
