Horrifying Footage Of Out-Of-Control Escalator In Rome

WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT

Up to 30 people were injured, including one who suffered a severed foot, after an escalator suddenly went out-of-control in Rome.

Screams can be heard in a horrifying video posted to Twitter, showing people being crushed on top of each other as the escalator speeds up at a terrifying pace.

One of the fans had a foot partially severed in the crush, Italian newspaper Repubblica reported.

It’s understood that excited soccer fans may have actually caused the malfunction after witnesses saw the fans singing and jumping on the escalator moments before the incident.
