MISSION VALLEY (CBS 8) - San Diego Fire-Rescue crews rescued a young boy who was trapped in an escalator at the Macy’s in Mission Valley Friday night.

The boy's foot was trapped in the bottom of the escalator on the first floor of the department store.

According to one witness, the boy was trapped for about an hour and was crying while the firefighters tried to free him.

"I was so scared for the kid. I hope they can be a little safer when they use the escalator," she said.

Macy's closed the escalator for repair.
