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.
This is by far one of the greatest alternatives to the shopping cart I have ever seen. There are more and more homeless people everyday. Obviously this wouldn’t be ideal for those who have no motivation and will continue to get hopped up on drugs, but for those hard working individuals that are down on their luck, this is a great solution to life without a home.
