Man swallowed by escalator in Turkey (VIDEO)
A shocking moment was captured in Istanbul when a man steps onto the escalator only to find that it’s collapsing just below his feet.
The footage first shows a stream of people walking down the escalator, which was out of action for repairs, at Ayazaga Metro station in Istanbul, Turkey.
But it suddenly began moving causing a line of people to simultaneously fall down the metal stairs.
As the man steps onto the stairs, they suddenly disappear beneath him and he disappears.
A split second earlier he can been seen hanging on to the railing before losing grip and vanishing into the gaping hole, before the metal stairs close over him.
A man was reportedly trapped beneath the escalator for an hour before being rescued by firefighters and taken to hospital with minor injuries, the Sun reported.
