MANHATTAN: Woman Tragically Killed After Falling Down High Escalator At the World Trade Center

Posted on Mar 13, 2017 in Slip and Fall


MANHATTAN, NEW YORK (March 12, 2017) – A fatal escalator accident killed a woman that was out for the night with her twin sister, according to the New York Post.

Police are saying that the woman was a substitute teacher from New Jersey.

It appears as though the accident took place while the woman was attempting to reach for a hat that was dropped by her sister. Escalators can be extremely dangerous.

It remains unclear if their was anything on the floor at the time of the floor. Slip and falls can happen for a variety of different reasons.

There may be a substance on the floor or some defect in the floor which causes an accident.

This is something that investigators will have to look into.

I referred Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff to a friend needing help with a birth injury & medical malpractice case. Having worked with founding partner Daniel Minc myself on a car accident case, I was sure they would be able to deliver results.
