Escalator horror escalates as brakes fail
What’s your recurring nightmare? Accidentally gluing your eyelids together? Being caught up in a real-life version of The Human Centipede? Having Heston Blumenthal come round and feed you deep-fried pellets of hamster shite?
For us, it’s being on a speeded-up, out-of-control escalator, as happens here in a Washington DC metro station. Six people were injured when the escalator’s brakes failed – but helpfully there’s also a version of the video that has been soundtracked with Yakety Sax.
