Escalator Rejects Russians in Rome

(1/1)

David Rochlin:
  An escalator in Rome broke down under the weight of partying Russian football hooligans jumping up and down and pouring alcoholic beverages in it.  The machine massively accelerated, downward, hurling rowdy riders to their doom:

Jay:
 A shame it was not operating to eject them out of Ukraine ! :)

Ted:
Who makes this escalator and how do we get them installed all over Russia?

The incident happened at Repubblica metro stop in Rome, and officials say many of those injured were Russians in town for a Champions League soccer game.
