Man killed at Hollywood & Highland after drunken escalator stunt

After a night of heavy drinking, a man fell several stories after trying to slide down the banister of an escalator at Hollywood & Highland last night. He was declared dead from a head injury. (Associated Press)

While the video below IS NOT from last night’s incident, or from Hollywood & Highland, it should serve as a warning that escalators are not jungle gyms. Take extra care when the drops go more than just a few feet.

After the jump, more escalator related accidents.

  1. Well, damn. There goes MY weekend unicycle hijinks on the Sunset Vermont Red Line escalators. I didn’t know someone could get hurt on those things!

  2. THANK YOU, Uncle David, for showing this. Using those video clips, I was able to have a good conversation with your “not always thinking” nephew.
