4 injured in domino fall on Metro escalator

FOUR passengers were injured when they tumbled down an escalator at the Laoximen Station of Metro Line 8 this morning, but they are all in stable condition.

The mishap happened at about 10: 30am when an elderly woman lost her balance and fell backward, causing others to fall like dominos, according to the Metro operator. It dismissed the rumor that their falls were caused by the escalator's sudden backward motion.

A couple in their 80s stepped onto the escalator followed by their children. But the elderly woman did not hold the handlebar and fell backward on people behind.

The four injured were sent to a nearby hospital. Except the old woman who remained in a coma, the other three suffered only minor bruises.
