Report of Escalator Fatalities, (Includes the Killer Escalator With the Mechanic)

This report is a few years old, but, I watched the killer elevator a little bit ago today in the death videos and tried to find out what happened. It is in here a few paragraphs down as, "Unknown Man".

Get your foot ripped off in an escalator? Call Tom Kline.

Outcome: Jury Verdict of $51M

Description: December 1999 A jury awarded Shareif $50 million yesterday for a sickening 1996 escalator accident that tore off his right foot. Shareif's mother, who was holding his hand as they rode the escalator up to Broad Street from the Cecil B. Moore subway station on Nov. 27, 1996, was awarded $1 million, plus $65 for the cost of the high-top sneakers her son, then 4 years old, wore that day. "Thank God it's over," the single mother of five said after the verdict for her youngest child.

I just read the report. It is interesting but I am a bit baffled. In some places it reads like a 13 year old wrote it for a school project. Here is a quote from the report to illustrate my point...

"Escalators, contrary to common sense, are dangerous devices and not toys to fool around with.."
Since when the fuck did common sense suggest that they are toys to fool around with ?
This is just one of a compendium of ridiculous remarks in that report.
But thanks to whoever posted it !!! it makes entertaining reading material, and some interesting facts interspersed with nonsensical commentary.
