She covers her ears, but the torrent crashes on her head and sends her out of control over the second floor of the mall during the Sunday incident.

The main impact of the wave is on the second floor, but it also extends to the first, where a terrified father rushes to save his son from a children's ride.

The woman and a second shopper were injured in the flood, which is believed to have been caused by a water-soaked canvas roof that tore under heavy rainfall.

Photos from after the incident show that the ceiling opens, as well as the injured woman covered with dry clothing and stretched out on the floor of the mall.

The mall, opened in 2016, has a distinctive open courtyard – which was covered by the large canvas.

A center spokesperson said they didn't know for sure why the roof broke, but officers from Shilong Town Emergency Management Office are investigating.
