The horrifying accident happened Friday morning as a 60-year-old woman shopped at a Shanghai supermarket, China.
The 60-year-old woman exits the escalator but has no idea a runaway cart is quickly approaching.
The collision sent the woman sprawling across the shopping floor.
Closed-circuit recordings show the woman as she came to the bottom of a modified escalator meant to allow shoppers to transport carts between floors.
As she finishes her descent, a second cart flies onto the screen and down the incline.
She’s blindsided by the fast-moving cart, reportedly weighed down by 150 kilos of drinks, and sent sprawling 6 metres into a pillar.
The wreckage piled on top of the woman, who didn’t stand against the high-speed cart weighing 150 kilos.
One man begins wildly throwing the goods that end up piled on the woman, hoping to help her.
The force of the collision created this damage, 6 metres from where the woman was first hit.The woman was sent to the hospital but died from the injuries.
