I have a fear of escalators. I’m always looking for how I can jump off if necessary.

that assumes you see it coming.

But think about as soon as it initially happens. All of a sudden, thing speeds up. The ones at the bottom immediately lose their balance and fall. The ones immediately behind them are stuck.

There is no reaction time for the ones that are at the bottom. There's reaction time for the ones at the top as they can see it coming. The ones right at the bottom have no time to react. They just fall over immediately.

If you're right at the bottom as soon as it speeds up and you're able to run, that's Usain Bolt type reaction. Imagine you get near the bottom and you're trying to time your step to step off and all of a sudden, the thing goes from 1x speed to 8x speed. There's no way you can react correctly to run off. You'd lose your balance and fall, or the person behind you will fall into you and now you're on the floor with your foot caught in the escalator.

I can guarantee that from my decades of video gaming and playing sports that I would have timed that crap perfectly and jumped off smoothly. At worst, if I had lost my balance I would have done a shoulder roll and immediately bounced back on my feet.

Those people who piled up at the end panicked like (bleep).
