Top Ten Ways an Escalator Can Be Dangerous

As a young child, I was always scared of escalators and I needed my mum or dad to carry me across.

The Top Ten

1 One limb could get caught in the stairs and the other in the hand rail.

This would cause you to be ripped apart. - Catlover2004

Like what happened in one of the Final destination series... - Ananya

2 You might stand on the line and not notice it.

Then when the stairs form, it will cause you to fall to your death. - Catlover2004

3 You might not see the end and get sucked in.

At least funeral costs would be much less.

Then you would be flattened. - Catlover2004

4 Someone could fall from the top.

If this happens, everyone will be knocked down like dominoes. - Catlover2004

5 A war will start between the stair-takers and the escalator-users.

Pick your side. - Catlover2004

6 People could get fat from using them.

I always use the stairs to get more exercise. - Catlover2004

7 If there is something at the bottom, you can't get away.

This would make a good Saw trap. - Catlover2004

8 If you try to go up one while being chased by a murderer, you might pick the wrong one.

This would be bad. - Catlover2004

9 It could easily be turned into a death trap.

Never let an escalator be put into the wrong hands. - Catlover2004

10 The escalator might get angry from people always walking on it and decide to attack.

Well how would you feel if that was you? - Catlover2004
