And we thought they had already conducted safety checks on all escalators in Shanghai. Sina Weibo user @德彪西東 reports of yet another escalator accident that happened today around 3pm, this time at the Shanghai Railway Station metro stop on Line 1 near Exit 1. The escalator came to an abrupt halt, he says, causing multiple people to fall. A little boy was injured from several cuts on his head.
With so many death traps in our public transportation network, one can’t help but wonder if it’s still safe to go out anymore.
