escalator accidents galore

Elevator Radio Show – Show Notes Only #405 - Week 08/12/15

Back from the Northwoods of Wisconsin and a short getaway with family I wish today I was still there. Having audio/video issues for some reason so no recorded part of the show today. Thanks to everyone who reached out regarding the video with the woman falling into the elevator. Bob I got your voicemail and thank you for clarifying that the two workers at the top didn’t know what to do, how to turn the escalator off. This is truly terrible as everyone should know there’s a stop button at the top and bottom of the units. More accidents in China are linked below as well as other escalator accidents. It’s like the flood gates opened. Feel free to share.
