made in china.

also, negligent design. the way it should be, a section (thread/step) must not be able do dislodge. in old days, it was possible to collapse inward and person would fall right inside moving machinery.

WTC Oculus Escalator Buckles, Sending 2 Men to Hospital, Officials Say

By Trevor Kapp and Aidan Gardiner | April 27, 2017 8:51am

FINANCIAL DISTRICT — Two men were injured when a World Trade Center Oculus escalator they were riding malfunctioned Thursday morning, officials said.

The men were on the escalator when it abruptly buckled about 7 a.m., according to a Port Authority spokesman.

They were able to walk out to a waiting ambulance which brought them to New York-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital for evaluation, officials said.

Commuters who need to use the escalator, which is just below street level near the Greenwich Street entrance, can use another one nearby to reach the lower levels, officials said.

Port Authority police and World Trade Center staff are investigating the incident, officials said.

The Tuesday morning incident came about two months after a woman fell to her death on an escalator in the transit hub while reaching over the rail for her fallen hat.
