Hong Kong shopping mall escalater suddenly goes into reverse. An escalator in Hong Kong’s busy shopping center (Langham Place shopping mall) suddenly went crazy and changed its direction gaining high speed and throwing the customers off balance. As a result 18 people got injured. A chain and an emergency brake seem to have malfunctioned on the 150ft escalator, despite it passing an inspection last week.
