A Chinese woman died over the weekend at a mall when the top of an escalator suddenly collapsed under her feet, trapping her inside, but she managed to save the life of her child, state-owned CCTV reported.

The accident occurred in Jingzhou, a city in the central province of Hubei, while the woman was shopping with her husband and 2-year-old son.

Mall security cameras show the woman and boy going up the escalator from the fifth to the sixth floor of the building and when they reach the top, the metal plate joining the escalator to the floor suddenly gives way.

Rescuers worked for four hours to recover the body of the 30-year-old woman.
