150-Foot Escalator At A Mall In China Thrown Into Reverse, Injuring 18 People (Video)
Posted by Zach on March 28 2017

Escalators.  For when you don’t want to take the stairs but still want to get to the deals on the top floor.  Some people fear escalators because they could suck your shoelaces into them or because they could stop abruptly, but how about an escalator just getting thrown into reverse with no warning?  At a mall in China, a 150-foot escalator did just that while tons of people were on it.  

In total, 18 people were hurt in the accident and one person is in the hospital in critical condition.  Two people have been arrested, accused of being the ones behind throwing the switch that changed the direction of the escalator.  But the company that hired the accused men says that it was a surprise that they were arrested.  Whatever the outcome, we’re definitely going to start to take the stairs.
