    15 fans hurt on stadium escaltor

    ANAHEIM (AP) — Fifteen baseball fans were hurt when an Edison Field escalator suddenly sped up to about three times its normal speed and hurled them into a football-style pileup after an Anaheim Angels game.

    None of the Tuesday night injuries on the Gate 4 terrace-level escalator was serious. Three people were taken to University of California, Irvine, Medical Center, where the most serious injury was a broken leg or ankle, Angels spokesman Tim Mead said.

    “We were about a quarter way down when the escalator started going about triple its normal speed. People couldn't get off fast enough at the bottom and there was a pileup,” fan Mike Rowan said.

    The escalator will be shut down until the cause of the accident is determined and the problem fixed, Mead said.

    The injured fans had just watched the Detroit Tigers shut out the Angels 3-0.

    I imagine it like this:
