Es­ca­la­tor ‘col­lapse’ shocks shop­pers

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: Shop­pers at the Pan­dan Cap­i­tal Mall in Pan­dan In­dah were star­tled yes­ter­day when the steps of a mov­ing es­ca­la­tor broke up and col­lapsed.

For­tu­nately, no ca­su­al­ties were re­ported as there were no shop­pers on the es­ca­la­tor when the in­ci­dent oc­curred at about 12.45pm.

It is un­der­stood that the in­ci­dent was caused by a tech­ni­cal mal­func­tion on one of the es­ca­la­tors on the ground floor of the com­plex.

“Re­pair work was com­pleted in less than half an hour,” a source told Ber­nama yes­ter­day.

This is the sec­ond in­ci­dent at the mall since July.
