An act of carelessness and irresponsibility meant that a woman had to be evacuated by emergency teams from a Chinese airport in Zhejiang province. The situation started when two people at the top of the escalator tried to send her suitcase down on their own.
The suitcase, however, did not stand upright, falling and gaining momentum and speed. As a result, a woman, who was on the last part of the stairs, ended up being hit and falling backwards to the floor. She realizes that the suitcase is coming towards her and tries to run, but there is no time and ends up being hit in both legs simultaneously.
At the end of the video (below), which was published by Chinese state media, the woman is shown being carried away on a stretcher. She reportedly suffered minor injuries and is expected to make a full recovery.
