A four-year-old boy has narrowly escaped injury after falling from an escalator after climbing up the side of it. He was caught by a local shopkeeper, who ran to catch him.

The incident happened at a shopping centre in Istanbul.

Quick-thinking shopkeeper Ali Apari said he saw the boy, who was visiting the centre with his father, playing near the escalator.
