At a supermarket in Shanghai, two men lost control of their heavily-loaded trolley, which then plunged down an escalator and killed the 60-year-old woman in its path. WARNING: The hit, which led to her death, is caught on camera and can be seen in the video below.
This took place on June 21st, 2013, around 10am, at Lianhua Supermarket in the Jiading district. The men had apparently loaded a trolley of their own with 15 crates of drinks, which weighed 300 catty (150kg), instead of using the supermarket trolley. The woman was rushed to the hospital, but died later due to serious injuries.

‘Drunk’ Japanese businessman walks the wrong way down Tube escalator
The man – wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase – appears unsteady on his feet as he tries to make his way down the escalator at Tottenham Court Road tube station.
Bemused commuters try to help him off, but he ignores them and continues to try and walk the wrong way.
After struggling for two minutes as people push past, he is guided away by a helpful commuter who pushes the emergency stop button and points him in the right direction.
The incident was caught on camera last Friday by Sam Napper, 27, who described the man as a “drunk Japanese businessman”.
Sam, from London, said: “At first I thought he was playing silly buggers with a few of his FX Trader mates but when we saw his dogged stagger and realised he was alone, I knew we were about to witness something truly brilliant.
“One by one, concerned commuters tried to steer him in the right direction, to no avail.
“After pausing for a few seconds, he turned around and walked out, as if nothing ever happened, saying nothing.”
