“A man died after falling several stories in a Hollywood shopping mall while apparently attempting to slide down the banister of an escalator, authorities said. The Hollywood & Highland complex includes the theater where the Academy Awards ceremony is held. The victim’s friends told officials investigating the Saturday night incident at the Hollywood & Highland Center that the man “had been drinking quite a bit,” said Los Angeles police Officer J. Boyer. Boyer said the man lost his balance and plunged several stories onto the steps of a moving lower-level escalator.”
Um clearly when the man attempted this, he forgot just how sticky those railings are. I’ve never understood why they’re not smooth rails until now. Thanks for the tip dude!
