When an escalator fails, don't just stand there and block the escape route.

I don't get what happened. Did the escalator started to roll down fast or did it stop? Because if it stops, unless the people from above start pushing down; there should be no problem.

Watch the WT Worker (Waste Transit??) beginning @0:42 just stand there and watch the chaos and then walk away in disgust at the end. A bit surprising the city worker didn't help out? Maybe not so surprising?

#7 I think the escalator started going too fast, hence "dumping" people.

#8 The watcher is awesome. He probably thinking "WTF is happening? Am I dreaming or is this real life?!" Which would explain why he just stands there waiting for things to go back to normal.

Every man for himself. In real life heroes are in short supply.
