I realize that this video is a year old, but it still amazes me every time I see it.

A kid in the mall decides to act like a daredevil and ride up the outside rail of the escalator.

When he gets to the top he loses his footing and falls from the highest point.

Luckily a good Samaritan happened to be watching the kid and had the wits to run underneath him.

Catching a nine year old kid from 15 feet is not an easy thing to do, but this guy did it, and probably saved the kids life.

(You'll probably enjoy the video more if you mute the guy commentating on it)

If we learned anything from the movie 'Mallrats", it should be that kids do not belong on the escalator unattended.
