This is just nuts … some kid in Turkey is lucky to be alive after he ran away from his parents and hung on to the outside of a moving escalator – only to fall off when it reached the top.

Luckily for him a concerned passerby saw what was happening and positioned himself underneath to catch him when he lost his grip …

Jaysis, Mary and the carpenter !

With a child so venturesome (or, maybe, suffering from a cognitive disorder) I wouldn’t chance letting him out of my sight for even the blink of an eye. Thank God the bystander was observant and quick-thinking.
