The hand of a seven-year-old child got hand stuck in an escalator at a mall here in an attempt to pick up a toy that fell on its steps.

The trapped child, identified as Sajan Daharia, was rescued after a two-hour-long operation that involved cutting of a portion of escalator, the police said.

 

The forearm of the child was badly injured following the accident, the investigating officer said.

According to him, the child, whose mother is an employee in the mall, was moving down in the escalator carrying some toys and bent to pick it up a toy.

The child’s left hand got stuck into the escalator in the process. People rushed the child to the government medical college hospital here immediately after the rescue.

“The girl needed several surgeries to correct her injured forearm”, a spokesman of the hospital said.
