LAST month, a two-year-old girl had two of her toe nails ripped out after her sandal was caught between the steps of an escalator at Funan DigitaLife Mall. Her large toe required stitches.

IN November 2006, a two-year-old girl had her big toe ripped off after her right rubber clog was caught in an escalator at Admiralty Place, a mall in Woodlands. The right toe was found nearly three hours later but could not be re-attached as it was too badly damaged.
