There was a scary scene following the Philadelphia Flyers' 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators, as a group of fans were tossed around by a malfunctioning escalator.
An eye witness video captured the bizarre scene as a group of fans were thrown around after the escalator inexplicably sped up.
"We heard the escalator rev up a little bit. It started going faster and faster. People couldn't get out of the way fast enough," Meghan McGreevy told NBC News.
Here's a first person account of what happened via a reader of Broad Street Hockey:
A representative for Comcast-Spectacor said the escalator was immediately closed and was not in use when the basketball team the 76ers played later Saturday.
"The comfort and safety of our guests is our number one concern," Ike Richman, vice president of public relations for Comcast-Spectacor, said in a statement.
"Immediately following today's game an incident did occur involving one of our escalators. We immediately closed it down to protect our patrons and notified the operator," Richman said. "We are working with the operator on investigating this incident."
Here is the video of the incident:
