Watch your step
A dealer at the Gold Strike said that a couple of weeks ago, a young lady fell on this escalator and tumbled all the way down. They had to shut off the escalator for more than one hour -- she cut herself in the fall and they had to clean up the blood, make sure the escalator was running okay, etc.
The escalator is not dangerous, though -- alcohol was to blame. The dealer said that there are minor falls (not bad ones like this) when people get about one-fourth of the way down, then decide they want to go back up. That doesn't sound like a good decision, does it?
