A woman in China was killed on Friday morning at Lianhua supermarket in Shanghai after she was hit by a runaway shopping cart. The horrific incident was caught on the store’s surveillance cameras.
The 60-year-old woman can be seen coming down a flat escalator with her own shopping cart. As she reaches the end, another cart flies rapidly down the escalator behind her and hits her in the back. The woman and her cart fly across the room.
She was taken to a nearby hospital where she died of her injuries.
A report on Stomp said the runaway cart had been filled by two men with 15 crates of drinks. They apparently chose not to use the kind of trolley that is capable of being locked in place on the escalators. A police investigation is underway.
