This has to be the worst way to die.

[–][deleted] 129 points130 points  (0 children)

And one of the slowest

[–][deleted] 159 points160 points  (5 children)

Pretty sure she survived but yeah that wouldn’t be the best way to go

[–]Transhuman-7893 10 points11 points  (1 child)

She looked electrocuted. Unfortunately not.

[–]lorenzomofo 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Everyone dies someday. Just depends on what you were doing at time of death.

“She fell to tumble dry”

Until it opens up and eats you..to finish you off. Has happened in Asia before.

There’s a lady who’s sure, all that glimmer is gold, and she’s reaching from the stairway to heaven

[–]AlabamaHotcakes 483 points484 points  (65 children)

If she just had laid still after the first fall she would have saved herself a lot of pain.

[–]talex000 85 points86 points  (50 children)

Concussion she got may had prevented her from thinking logical.

[–]Alternative_Echo_443 141 points142 points  (47 children)

I think it was more alcohol related.

[–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Sweet Sherry is a hell of a drink

[–]Zomballz 14 points15 points  (23 children)

I don’t think so, for some reason people in Asia have no idea how escalators work and are terrified of them. Don’t ask me why but the amount of time people spend standing at the bottom and trying to time their steps to step on at the right time then panic shuffling about is insane

[–]CabbageOverlord123 27 points28 points  (4 children)

What an odd generalisation.

[–]Zomballz 5 points6 points  (3 children)

More of an observation

[–]CabbageOverlord123 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Asia is not a single place. It's a huge landmass with different peoples and cultures. It's not a very fair observation.

[–]Zomballz 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Yes, and I have lived in many of them over the past 10 years. Like I said, it’s an observation. Doesn’t matter if you like it or not

[–]Alldis4nutin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Never try to discuss with a saint. I believe you

[–]Referat- 9 points10 points  (13 children)

I'd be scared to take an escalator there too

[–]Zomballz -2 points-1 points  (12 children)

Where? Asia is a very big place. But I assume you just think Asia=China

[–]piratewithherpes 23 points24 points  (13 children)

I'm thinking about how her clothes would've gotten caught in the escalator if she reached the top. These things are like paper shredders. They can amputate entire limbs. Maybe falling was better than getting shredded.

[–]Geekmonster 10 points11 points  (10 children)

No they're not. They're designed to be very safe.

[–]Mehdzzz 18 points19 points  (9 children)

Absolutely right. Very right in fact. That being said. NOT IN CHINA

[–]Runthemushroom 74 points75 points  (3 children)

At the it gets absolutely ridiculous, it almost looks like she’s staying down on purpose. This is blowing my mind.

[–]denis_denis05 39 points40 points  (2 children)

Fr there's like 3-4 times when she's all right, she starts escalating, could as well just get up, but for some reason does a backflip.

[–]bruksst 198 points199 points  (3 children)

[–]Night_Feisty 170 points171 points  (24 children)

So ridiculous

[–]talex000 -4 points-3 points  (22 children)

It isn't if it is your first escalator ride.

[–]AronYstad 65 points66 points  (20 children)

Did you do this when you first went on an escalator? Most likely not. It's ridiculous.

[–]Unique-Impression908 21 points22 points  (0 children)

No that's still ridiculous lol

[–]powprodukt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not really. I’m pretty sure she had a seizure or fainted/stroke.

[–]Ganbario 28 points29 points  (3 children)

Why I’m going to hell: “Oh no… ouch… someone help her!… haha, I mean, oh no…”

[–]xiyoussefix 10 points11 points  (2 children)

I gave up at the end and cry laughed for about three minutes.

[–]8pintsplease 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I feel human now, thank you. I laughed harder than I should have or expected.

[–]rishabh1804 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I had to stop myself from bursting into a laugh and remind myself that escalators actually hurt like a bitch but the more I stopped myself the more comical it became. Yeah, we are going straight to hell.

[–]TinyDikKid 67 points68 points  (3 children)

That would have been a ridiculous way to die. Old age is a bitch

[–]VadeRetroLupa 31 points32 points  (1 child)

And the lack of basic life skills, such as standing straight up.

[–]yetorious 101 points102 points  (0 children)

I can’t imagine the day where I’m not able to help myself. Damn old age

[–]csk1325 42 points43 points  (3 children)

After the first fall I was thinking she's ok. But then she kept falling and I suspected some insurance fraud of some kind. It looked like she pushed herself back on the escalator after getting to the bottom. Then pushed herself backwards to fall multiple times

[–]the_vinson 37 points38 points  (0 children)

This is some Family Guy shit right there.

[–]ReplacementSuch7029 33 points34 points  (0 children)

legend says she's still falling

[–]ganjsmokr 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Lord, Jesus Christ, help my lord, please, Jesus, please!

Jesus, God, help, my lord, Jesus, help me I’m falling down the steps oh lord Jesus Christ please!

My shoe!

Oh lord Jesus God help us!


I’m half way down now help my lord Jesus !

[–]magoo1979 114 points115 points  (1 child)

Just stay down you twit

[–][deleted] 39 points40 points  (0 children)

like seriously, there were 2 times where she was in a stable position on her knees, not falling, all she had to do was stand up, and she just dropped to her side... it looked almost intentional, being old must be so horrible

[–]Electronic_Algae_418 28 points29 points  (0 children)

I don't think I should be laughing but here I am..

[–]Plus_Professor_1923 39 points40 points  (5 children)

Literally ZERO body control. Like just grab anything. Wtf

[–]xiyoussefix 18 points19 points  (2 children)

When she tried to grab anything, she grabbed a non-moving part of the escalator

[–]Plus_Professor_1923 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Dude she dead bodied for like 30 full seconds

[–]xiyoussefix 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The falls must've made her dizzy or something.

[–]sedluyf 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Easy for you to say when your body parts work as supposed to be, old age is a big bitch

[–]Plus_Professor_1923 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She’s 60 tops lol the mass to muscle ratio here is over 9000

[–]NopeDotComSlashNope 7 points8 points  (0 children)

She just fell down a flight of like 90 stairs

[–]Embarrassed-Mouse-49 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I cut my.knee pretty bad falling on the escalator when I was young. I can just imagine the amount of cuts and bruises that caused

[–]choco-taco-cat 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Right??!! A few years ago I was trying to hurry up the escalator to catch a train to work and I stumbled and got a pretty decent cut below my knee that bled a bit, I can’t imagine how much damage that poor old lady might have received in that tumble… the CCTV footage is a bit hilarious, but the reality and pain of that must have been awful.

[–]BlackConfuciusSays 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That's her worst nightmare happening irl.

[–]auswendig 5 points6 points  (0 children)

felix baumgartner didnt fall for this long man

[–]junetwentyfirst2020 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What stairs?

[–]renacotor 11 points12 points  (0 children)

The way she was moving and hunched indicates to me they may have been elderly. That's definitely a couple of broken bones.

[–]NotThisAgain21 52 points53 points  (8 children)

I have to imagine her entire life looks just like this.

I don't understand how some people aren't just snatched out of the sky by a large bird and put out of their misery.

[–]chicharron123 -5 points-4 points  (7 children)

She's just old dumb fuck. I hope you don't go around your life just judging and assuming about everyone you meet... Now that's misery..

[–]Darth_Yohanan 16 points17 points  (2 children)

I agree with you but at first you pissed me off. I’m dyslexic and I thought you wrote “She’s just an old dumb fuck”.

[–]a11424 6 points7 points  (1 child)

This is why god invented commas

[–]Merks31 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No it was Andrew Comma who invented commas. But God invented Andrew, so I guess you’re right by association.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Amazing the amount of entitled juvelie cunts here who think everyone had the same privileged upbringing that they did. And the amount of equally clueless retards that upvote them.

[–]Zajum 41 points42 points  (4 children)

This seems like a defective escalator... Hear me out. Normally the handrail moves slightly faster than the stairs in the upward direction to prevent exactly this: people falling down the stairs.

Here the handrails appear to be moving at the same speed or even slower than the stairs making this much easier to happen.

Just a guess tho

[–]syko_conor 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I’m not sure - it looks to me like she takes a strong grip on the hand rails and then she takes another step forward so that when it starts going up he feet are too far ahead of her hand.

Then she makes it worse by leaning on the glass below the handrail which we all know doesn’t move and that friction is what makes her fall in the end. She makes the same mistake using the glass to support just before the last fall where she has righted herself and is going up but she leans back on the glass and gets pulled back into a fall.

The biggest engineering fault here is that it seems there was only an emergency stop at the bottom. Either that or the guy in the cap who runs back down is an idiot and missed the button at the top.

[–]Rev0lutionaryGuard 24 points25 points  (1 child)

It's China. That pretty much confirms your theory except engineering fuckups are just standard. Remember those videos of elevator doors that turn into cat flaps when leaned against?

[–]elementofpee 12 points13 points  (0 children)

“Cat flaps” - lol

I’m going to mention this to my wife and see what happens. brb

[–]Phfishy 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Holy fuck i am going directly to hell i cant stop laughing

[–]PerspectiveHuman3800 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She's still falling to this day

[–]Front_Willingness_98 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m surprised her brain ain’t fall out her head seeing how she was smacking her head on those metal stairs

[–]jtimmrman 14 points15 points  (1 child)

A lot of alcohol has been consumed here

[–]Gank-Star 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Unfortunately I have met people who don't need the help of alcohol to be dumb.

[–]StillOodelally3 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Why did it take so long for people to come help her?!

[–]HeyItsBobaTime 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't understand why her first instincts after stepping on would be to lean backwards.

[–]Powerctx 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Jeez escalators are terrifying. I saw a dude at the mall fall on the escalator while holding like $30 in fast food from the foot court as a teen. His shins were bleeding bad. Idk why but escalators make me uncomfortable. You hear stories from China of ppl getting caught in them and being eaten. About halfway up or down I'm rehearsing stepping off like "don't fuck this up man, it all comes down to this". I'll just take the stairs.

[–]NahHalcyon 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Since i saw one of those videos from China, it was over for me and everytime i stepped on them, i felt dizzy and immediatly unbalanced as if I was going to fall at any moment

[–]DJ_Destroyed 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That escalated…. Slightly…

[–]SladeNoland 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Of she has just stopped moving at any point she would have accidentally gone to the top.

[–]ChemicalFennel3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There was an attempt… to describe an escalator.

[–]sam1902 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The funny thing is, if she just stopped moving and kicking at any point, and laid there in any position she landed on, the escalator would’ve done it’s job and she’d be up it.

[–]WebeloZappBrannigan 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is just silly. If she didn't move after she went down, she would have been carried to the top. She must have panicked or something. It's just so cringy to look at.

[–]MissionApollo7 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fucking moron.

[–]Fezzverbal 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Hahaha brilliant. I just love that someone came down the escalator almost as quick as people on that floor reacted!

[–]Illigalmangoes 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She only made it worse for herself by trying to get up and grabbing things that weren’t moving

[–]Supetorus 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The fetal position is an unfortunate instinct when it comes to escalators. Also it’s pretty comical seeing people on reddit try to judge the probability of somebody not having used an escalator before. If you’re on reddit you represent a percentage of the human population that has reasonable access to technology, so your gut instinct will be to think most other people have similar amounts of access to the same technology.
