Beijing Escalator Malfunction Leaves One Dead and 28 Wounded -Warning Graphic Photos

Posted by w_thames_the_d on July 5, 2011


An escalator in Beijing’s Subway Line 4 had a ‘malfunction’ which lead to one person being killed 2 badly injured and 27 slightly injured  earlier today.
In a scene from everyone’s worst nightmare, an escalator in Beijing malfunctioned killing a 13 year old boy and wounding up to 30 others. The subway where it occurred supposedly wreaked of blood and fear. As of yet there has been no explanation for what happened, and by looking at the photos, one can only imagine. (also posted here)

Update: Supposedly the escalator suddenly reversed directions. Beijings MTR is issuing apologies as the escalator supposedly had been serviced only two days prior.
