Dozens of hockey fans were violently thrown off an escalator when the staircase abruptly sped up as they left an NHL game, video shows.
Philadelphia Flyers fans were clearing out of the city's Wells Fargo Center following their win against the Ottawa Senators Saturday when their triumphant exit took an unexpected turn.
"Escalator got a little excited about the flyers win too..." Meghan McGreevy posted on Facebook along with a six-second video capturing the pileup.
The video shows people being knocked to the floor and at least one man toppling over the railing.
Fortunately for the riders, no injuries were reported.
A spokesman for Comcast Spectacor, which owns and manages the arena, confirmed the malfunction to NBC 10, saying the escalator had been immediately closed and repairs were underway.
