ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - A shopkeeper in Turkey has saved a four-year-old boy after he fell from the side of an escalator at an Istanbul shopping mall.

Security camera video of the incident shown Thursday on websites shows the man rushing just in time as the boy dangled about 15 feet (4 1/2 meters) above the floor of the Basaksehir shopping center last week. Moments later, the boy falls backward and the shopkeeper catches him unharmed.

The shopping mall is located on the western side of Istanbul.
