The chilling video shows people screaming and panicking on an escalator going backwards. Screams and panic engulfed a commuter rail station when an ascending escalator changed direction and started to head back down. Five people have been reported to be injured though luckily no one suffered any life threatening injuries
The YouTube video of the escalator shows some people jumping onto the divider between the up and down escalators as others shouted in alarm or tried to keep walking up.
Two of the station's three escalators were shut down after the incident, forcing thousands of commuters to walk up the 128 stairs to the street.
