The mean age of children who were injured in this study was 6.5 years, and more than half (53.4%) of patients were male. Children who were younger than 5 years had the highest number of estimated injuries, as well as the highest average annual rate of injury, compared with other age groups.Ninety-seven percent of patients were treated and released from the ED. Injuries that required admittance to the hospital (same facility as ED visit) most often were a fracture or a dislocation (33.9%), amputation/avulsion (27.0%), and laceration (20.0%). Of patients who were held for observation, all received a diagnosis of an amputation/avulsion injury.
another good trick is to stop walking when you get off the escalator. I often think, 'if you lot can't walk on the escalator, then why should I walk when the ride comes to and end'. If people forget how to climb stairs then I can forget how to walk as people pile into the back of me with nowhere to go. I love Christmas shopping.
Turnipsock I might try that trick next time that I have to use the london underground's escalotors. nice idea. I will tell what happens. LOL LOL LOL

LOL LOL LOL Good point, but when I lived in London it seemed that nobody had explained this to the tourists (particularly the American ones I found- and they didn't have the excuse that they couldn't read the signs)Anyway, modern escalators don't have anywher that can trap limbs so how do people lose bits?The Undreground is the best place for travelling on escalators, standing on the right, walking on the left...I wish more places would do this.
