Again! Tourist’s shoe gets stuck at airport moving walkway


TAKING place again just two and half months after a woman’s left leg was severed till the knee by a moving walkway at Don Mueang Airport was a scary moment for a tourist when his shoe got jammed in a travelator at Suvarnabhumi Airport, Sanook.com said today (Sep. 13).

A video of this scary incident was shared by TikTok user @namfon.phiroonphon and fortunately the tourist was not injured.

She said she was just behind the tourist and she first thought it was a shoelace that had got caught at the end of the moving walkway but later saw that it was the sole of the shoe that had jammed there.

She added that she almost fell when the moving walkway suddenly stopped with a jerk.

She urged all travellers to carefully check their shoes and be mindful when getting off these travelators.

In the horrific June 29 accident the unidentified 57-year-old female passenger who was travelling to Nakhon Si Thammarat was proceeding through Don Mueang Airport’s Terminal 2 Southern Corridor between piers 4-5 when she suddenly lost her left leg till the knee after it was swallowed and severed at the end of the moving walkway there.

On August 17 a young man working for a convenience store located in a popular department store in Pathum Thani injured his right leg after his shoe got stuck in an escalator.

ตอนแรกนึกว่าเชือกผูกรองเท้าติดทางเลื่อน คาดว่าน่าจะเป็นพื้นรองเท้าค่ะที่ติด เหตุการณ์ที่สุวรรณภูมิค่ะ นี่เดินตามหลังสายพานหยุดกะทันหันก็เกือบสะดุดเหมือนกัน เช็ครองเท้าและมีสติตอนจะเดินถึงสุดปลายทางกันนะคะโชคดีที่ไม่มีใครเป็นอะไรค่ะ
