Admit it - we all have a preternatural fear of this each
time we board...
At the Istanbul Metro's İTÜ Ayazağa station yesterday evening
at around 17:30, customer Mehmet Ali Erik fell through the
escalator steps and was rescued after an hour's effort by
City officials issued the following statement in connection
with the incident: "Despite the warning sign placed in front of
the escalator (!), a citizen entered the escalator and fell through
because the underpinning of the stair had been removed for
the ongoing repairs. Firefighters were able to extract the citizen
from the place where he got stuck. The citizen suffered a broken
left arm and cuts and scratches on his other arm and legs."
...and when you want it to happen it never does!
