What’s up with China and all these escalator mishaps?
Last year, we had three big stories from the country.
In August, we heard that one about 35-year-old Zhang, a who unfortunately lost his leg in a freak escalator accident while he was doing his job. In September of the same year, we also got the news about that incident in Chongqing where a poor 4-year-old boy tragically died when he got crushed in an escalator handrail. Also, who can forget that accident in a Jingzhou shopping where a mother died as she was “swallowed” by a collapsing escalator floor, heroically saving her child in the process.
It’s just February and a new escalator trouble in the country has gone viral on the web once again.
Fortunately though, it wasn’t as terrible as the above-mentioned incidents.
This unsuspecting crowd didn’t know that the escalator would switch direction and cause injuries among them.
This one took place in Ningbo, Zhejiang where a CCTV footage showed that a thick crowd of people tumbled over like dominoes as the escalator randomly reverses its direction.
The escalator immediately stopped after that but not without causing some inconvenience. According to reports, at least five people were injured after they were stacked on top of one another.

It’s a good thing that most of the people were spared but frankly, it sounds like more people in China will be taking the stairs these days again.

That Awkward Moment When a Reporter Presents a Mugshot of a Felon Who Looks Just Like Him
It's like a scene out of a movie. A crime show host is live on television, reporting about the conviction of a criminal who was apprehended with the help of the show. When the mugshot of the felon was flashed on the screen beside him, the man on the image looks shockingly similar to the crime show host.
Except this actually happened in real life...sort of.
Jason Mohammad, one of the hosts of the BBC crime show “Crimewatch”, was reporting an update together with fellow presenter Sophie Raworth.
Nepalese Kids Go Through Terrifying Cable Ride Just to Get to School
Other kids don’t know how lucky they are.
I'm in awe of children from poor countries doing whatever it takes just to get an education. The stories should be shared to your children to let them know how lucky they are to be able to stroll or take the bus to get to school safely. So the next time your kid whines about being too lazy to walk to school, just show him these pictures of children in Dhaing Village in Nepal. Here, children have no choice but to cross the river using a flimsy cable bridge if they want to reach class.
All this trouble just to get to class.
High School Girl Beats the Crap Out of A Guy Who Bullied Her On Facebook
Tough luck, kid.
If you're a guy, getting beat up by another dude in front of other people is already embarrassing as sh*t. So what more if you get your ass handed to you by a girl? This is what happened to this high school kid in Sonoma Valley High School in California, who was reportedly bullying a girl on Facebook. The girl may be facing charges because of the incident.
According to ABC 7, when the girl confronted him personally at school about that problem, he threw water at her. That's when things got really humiliating for the dude, because unknown to him, girl's got some MMA skills.
