This is absolutely terrifying. People in Rome were shaken when an escalator collapsed and caused a large group of people to quickly slide down to the ground. As of right now, at least twenty people have reported serious injuries. This is so heartbreaking.
The huge shock comes from the video footage that surfaced online, showing how dramatic the event was. Most of the people in the video are fans that were headed to a football match between Russia and Italy. They were headed down into the subway system to go to the game when the escalator gave way. Some fans were able to get to the island to avoid injury.
