A friend of mine recently sent me an email with the following note from a friend of hers:
“Today we were leaving Northpark in Dallas and had to ride the escalator down to get to the right level. As we approached the bottom of the escalator the escalator quickly grabbed my son’s shoe. I yanked him out right away, saving the foot but obviously not the shoe. I’m amazed he has all his toes & zero scratches. I had heard about this happening, but just wanted to let you all know that it happened to me, and happened in the blink of an eye.”
I checked on www.snopes.com, and apparently it is “TRUE” that this happens. Here’s the link to the Snopes recap.
So, while you’re out doing your Christmas shopping, holiday traveling, or otherwise in locales where escalators are prevalent, keep this “AFTER” shoe picture in mind.
