5yo girl’s hand crushed in GC shopping centre escalator

A young girl has been taken to hospital with injuries to her hand after it became stuck in an escalator at a shopping centre on the Gold Coast yesterday.

Emergency services rushed to Pacific Fair in Broadbeach around 4.30pm Tuesday after receiving reports a five-year-old girl had been injured in an escalator accident.

The child was treated at the scene before being transported to Gold Coast University Hospital with injuries to her fingers.


It is the second escalator accident the shopping centre has encountered in just two months.
