That’s poor engineering and design! Properly you would design it to handle that weight and at least 3-10 times more just to be safe. Seems like they had to cut corners from lack of funds. I would of jumped off, falling into metal is a nightmare! I hope everyone is okay!

Actually, they should have the standing area and down walking area what I mean is like they shouldn't stand on the escalator all together that would definitely break the systems of the escalator in terms of their weight. instead they must have a side for standing another side for people to walk down like Singapore escalators, So that everything would be balanced.

Who was jumping? Didn't see one person jump, just the high speed of the escalator... They are trying to deflect blame.

It is kinda their own fault. Why the hell would you stand with like 30 people on an escalator?!
we have way more people on escalators here and nothing like that has happened... and i didn't see anyone jumping BEFORE the escalator malfunctioned. They claim they were jumping to get out of responsibility to all of those people.
