Escalator speeds up at Philadelphia Flyers game, causes fan pileup


Scary moment at the Wells Fargo Center.

An escalator carrying fans after the Flyers game broke, sped up, and sent fans tumbling into one another at the bottom.

This caused a pileup of fans and thank goodness, no serious injuries were reported.

Here is some video of the incident from Meghan McGreevy.

Broad Street Hockey, SBNation’s Flyers blog, talked with one fan, Tom, who said both of his parents were injured in the incident:

I along with my parents and girlfriend were all on board the malfunctioning escalator. We were all but at the top when it started to speed up. It felt as if it just “let go” and it was a very fast, seemingly very long, ride to the bottom. Waiting at the bottom was a pile of fans to trip over and behind us were another group of fans waiting to collapse on top of us. Once at the bottom we were in the middle of a pile of fans with several people hurt including both of my parents. Me and my girlfriend frantically tried to get out of the way and help my parents and another older couple who seemed to get the worse of the fall. Once in first aid there were several people getting checked out. Everything from bruises to possible broken bones. It was a very scary experience and a sad way to end the day after a huge flyers win.
