Escalator Fail

Escalator's sudden reverse by itself injures 5 at commuter train station.

All three escalators at the Exchange Place PATH Station in Jersey City are out of service after a one of them suddenly reversed during the Monday morning commute, injuring five.

That means a long walk up and down for commuters while the Port Authority tries to figure out if Hurricane Sandy had anything to do with Monday morning’s surprise reverse ride malfunction.

The Exchange Place PATH station escalator took dozens of street-level-bound commuters on an unexpected express trip back downstairs in reverse — and at high speed.(WPIX NY)
