A 4-year-old boy in Xi'an, capital of Shaanxi province, was pulled off the edge of an escalator just as he was about to fall.
According to the boy's mother, the boy was playing with another child while she shopped.
Later, she suddenly saw the boy going up while his body hung over the hand rest.
Just as the boy was about to roll off the escalator on the second floor, a woman grabbed him. The mother could not find the woman to thank her.
"I must find her, I felt so grateful to her," she said. She feared the boy would have been injured if he fell or got trapped.
