A cleaner's foot was amputated after it became stuck into a shopping mall escalator in Shanghai on Sunday.

The cleaner, 35-year-old Zhang Shisheng, was cleaning the escalator on Saturday evening in Shanghai's Cloud Nine Shopping Mall.

Surveillance video showed Zhang put a mop at the joint of the top platform to sweep the steps. He stepped on the mop and it suddenly became stuck in the space between steps and the top platform. As a result, the step flipped up, and his left leg was drawn inside.

Zhang was able to stop the escalator by hitting the red emergency button and was freed by firefighters around 20 minutes later. He was sent to a local hospital where his foot was amputated.
