Eight Indians fall down BTS escalator

Eight Indian tourists fell down an escalator at Phaya Thai skytrain station on Wednesday morning. Several of them were slightly injured.

According to the Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS), the incident happened about 10.15am when the tourists - three men and five women - were going up on the escalator, intending to catch a train to Bearing station.

They were fooling around and joking with each other before they all tumbled down. There were no children.

BTS staff provided first aid to the wounded commuters.

BTS needs a new warning sign "No fooling around while using the escalator" . Lucky there weren't any other commuters were involved.

I believe the general public would also like to see the actual CCTV footage to verify the claim by BTS that they were fooling around.
