Terrified hockey fans went flying off a malfunctioning escalator inside Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center following a Flyers game on Sunday afternoon. The shocking incident shows people crashing into each other at the bottom of an escalator that suddenly sped up. Each year thousands of people are injured riding escalators. At a Washington D.C. metro station, an escalator also suddenly sped up, sending travelers tumbling down in 2012.

What if it breaks in the middle though? TBH there's literally no point in having them at the top or the bottom anyway because you're already there , you're already at the end. Where else more can you go?

You know that incident in japan/china when a woman and her son were going up the escalator? Yeah, the escalator opened on the top swallowing the woman slowly, it was so sad to see, even if she was suffering she still handed her son to the salesladies hurriedly while her lower body was being swallowed. The staff couldnt do anything, especily since they were women. The woman eventually died and her son, i think was sent to a relative or an orphanage. It totally broke my heart watching the scene

If an escalator breaks it usually becomes stairs, not this time.

Happened to football ( soccer fans ) in Rome. People lost limbs and everything as the bottom bit popped up and was just like a knife slicing peoples legs ect as they hit it

In the movie, the final destination, the was a escalator accident that caused an unreal exotic death. So severe that it caused a persons body to get sucked into it

Install a speed sensor. If it goes too fast, apply emergency brake

How about not shoving 5,000 people on an escalator at once. Common sense people.

Yeah, no, that stop button isn't doing a thing in these situations. Can't stop an escalator when the belt snaps and there's nothing to stop it.

Shout out to the people who helped those who collapsed at the bottom of the escalator... *_Instead of pulling out their cell phones..._*
