It's a Costco/Sams/home improvement style cart, but still.
A grandmother was killed when an overloaded runaway shopping cart went barreling down an escalator and struck her, sending her crashing into a post.
The death, caught on closed-circuit TV, shows the 60-year-old woman near the bottom of the flat escalator in Shanghai, China, when she is hit from behind by the speeding shopping cart, loaded with 15 cases of drinks and weighing 150 kilograms, The Strait Times reported.
The unsuspecting woman was sent flying about seven metres before striking a post.
The June 21 accident took place at the Lianhua Supermarket in the Jiading district after two men lost their grip on the shopping cart, which was their own and did not belong to the store, according to the Strait Times.
The two men can be seen running down the escalator chasing their grocery cart moments after the woman is hit.
Police are investigating.
