The Japanese government has issued a public warning regarding the popular Croc shoes. The world-famous plastic clogs have been the cause of 40 accidents, most of them involving children, as the Crocs get stuck in escalators very easily. The worst was suffered by a 5-year-old girl that broke her middle toe and the nails of three other toes ripped off after her shoe got stuck on the moving stairs. Six others were mildly injured, the youngest of which was 2. The remaining 33 people just reported damage to the shoes, but the Japanese government decided to intervene before any more accidents could occur.
