This looks a lot like a cartoon, and is certainly a universally shared fear!
An escalator’s fail-safes were not safe, turning into a loose, freely spinning nightmare. The escalator was designed so the stairs remained stairs, and people were speedily but calmly chucked into a growing pile of fine people.
The escalator breaks causing it to spin out of control.
Kudos to the Cypriot lending a hand!
