Horrific Escalator Accident in Taiwan

A metro deputy stationmaster fell to his death after a long flood-backing board he was carrying became stuck on the ceiling and pierced through the escalator. The force sent him to the bottom of the escalator shaft and turned it into a giant meat grinder. He was working to test the flood-prevention facilities at the station — a standard operating procedure at MRT stations during typhoon season. The flood-backing boards required two people to carry up using the stairs instead of the escalator. However, it seemed he did the job on his own without waiting for a contracted worker.
