Girl still afraid two years after escalator mishap

MALAYSIA - A 12-year-old girl, whose left foot got stuck in an escalator at a shopping mall in Malacca two years ago, has only used the escalator once since the incident.

China Press reported that Chrisanta Geron Lee's mother said they took 30 minutes to persuade her to use the escalator.

"She does not want to use an escalator again, so we always take the lift," she said.

On Dec 27, 2010, Chrisanta was taking the escalator to the ground floor when her foot got wedged in the space between the steps.

The Fire and Rescue Department had to be called to free her foot.

She was later rushed to Malacca Hospital for treatment.
