    Oh my god! If the bloke had been looking the other way god knows what the outcome would have been... good on him for being so alert and quick thinking!

    Gotta say though where the hell was dad/mum.. finding a bargain in a shop window?

    To be fair kids do scarper quickly and its not like he fell he climbed up the side of the escalator. Parents should of been watching more closely yes, but then again even i knew at that age not to climb escalators :confused1:

    VERY lucky little boy

    To be fair that is Turkey very child centric but they're not as under control as here say. I know I ran off at that age. That shop keeper is a hero

    I can't see it :confused:
    But sounds like someone stopped a nasty accident!

    I make sure my son is ALWAYS next to me out shopping purely because I do not trust people. My brother got taken/caught up in a crowd from my dad by the checkouts and we found him by the ride-on's outside he was terrified and I never want that to happen to my kids.
    If I feel he is being uncontrolable (as young kids often are) he gets threatened to put the 'baby lead' (wrist strap) on, and he instantly behaves.
