| by Amanda Andrade-Rhoades

A 5-year-old girl took a terrifying tumble down two floors in a Solnechny shopping center in Novy Urengoy, Russia, and her fall was caught on camera (video below).

The girl, identified by The Huffington Post as Linara, can be seen playing with the escalator handrail while her aunt is on the phone. Linara then tightly grabs onto the rail, and the escalator hauls her up as she dangles over the floor.

People were so furious about this Pepsi ad that Pepsi pulled it after just one day. Watch it here and decide if it's offensive:

Linara’s aunt scrambles up the escalator to pull her niece to safety, but the child falls and reportedly lands two floors down.

Linara was hospitalized but suffered only minor cuts and bruises, The Telegraph reports. She is expected to make a full recovery.
