A seven-year-old boy is believed to have lost a toe in an escalator accident on Sunday afternoon.

He was on an escalator with his parents at around 2pm at Taman Jurong Food Centre when the accident happened. According to the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), it received a call at about 2.25pm that a boy's toe was stuck in the escalator.

Officers from the SCDF arrived seven minutes after it was contacted but he had already been sent to a hospital by his father.

The five-storey food centre in Yung Sheng Road is owned and managed by the National Environment Agency.
