This is the moment a huge statue of Avengers supervillain Thanos falls on top of a young boy playing with it in a store and leaves him concussed.

The incident was filmed at Mega Center Almaty in the Kazakh city of Almaty and the boy was reportedly left with a concussion.

The lawyer of the boy’s pregnant mother claimed the huge Thanos figure was only fixed to the floor with sticky tape.

He added: “We will prepare the relevant statements to take to court.”

The lawyer also claimed that the Thanos figure weighed 150 kilogrammes (331 lbs).
