A MAN is fighting for life after falling down an escalator at a shopping centre in Brisbane.

Emergency crews were called to Indooroopilly Shopping Centre on Moggill Road about 5.00pm on Thursday, after a man in his 50’s suffered the horror fall.

The shopper was treated at the centre by both a critical care paramedic and High Acuity Response Unit paramedic for a significant head injury.


He was then taken to the Royal Brisbane Hospital in a critical condition.

Reports suggest the man may have suffered a medical episode prior to the fall.
