VIDEO: Woman Flips Over After Trying To Ride Motorized Scooter Up MBTA Escalator

BOSTON (CBS) – A woman on a motorized scooter fell down an escalator on the MBTA last week.

On Friday, the 56-year-old woman from South Boston was attempting to ride her scooter up an escalator at the Broadway MBTA Station, but flipped over a couple times and fell down.

Surveillance cameras showed other passengers and MBTA workers rushing to her aid.

She managed to walk away from the incident.

The MBTA is installing more surveillance cameras throughout the system to help passengers and alert them to accidents like this one.

Officials hope that adding more cameras will also help cut down on crime.
