There have been many instances in the last year where people have been injured or killed while riding escalators. Several of these incidents just so happened to be alcohol-related. Either the person was acting carelessly or was simply impaired. As you can see in this video, the gentleman was clearly under the influence of alcohol. This is a very dangerous situation and kudos to these people for trying to get him safely off the escalator. Be careful out there and respect the escalator!
