A commuter using Boston area's subway system literally got his knickers in a twist, when a train station escalator ripped off his pants.
Joe Pesaturo, a spokesman for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation
Authority, told the Boston Herald that the accident on Thursday morning
happened at Davis Station in Somerville. It was the second escalator
mishap involving clothing on the "T'' in two days.
The man whose pants got stuck in the escalator wasn't hurt. Fellow commuters say he
was left standing in blue shorts while his pants were stuck in the
bottom of the escalator.
On Wednesday, an 89-year-old man was injured when he fell and his coat got caught in an escalator at the Chinatown Station.
MBTA officials are urging escalator riders to be mindful of loose clothing.
