Metro escalator breaks down, no one seriously hurt

AN OTIS escalator in the Caoyang Road Station of Metro Line 3 suddenly stopped around 8:50am this morning. Fortunately no one was seriously hurt as there were few riders on it, the Metro operator said.

A surveillance camera, which covered the lower part of the escalator, showed no one fell when the escalator bogged down, according to the Shanghai Shentong Metro Co Ltd.

Some witnesses, however, said they saw people tumbling and one man was hurt in the leg. "He was on his knees and I saw blood on his leg," said a microblogger named Zhao Jiale. "When people fell over, I lost balance and my head hit the handrail," she wrote.

The escalator has been shut off and its manufacturer, the OTIS Elevator (China) Co, will investigate its problem.
