WASHINGTON (BY JOHN HENREHAN, myfoxdc) - Surveillance video has been released by Metro of an escalator malfunction at the L'Enfant Plaza Metro Station.
The crowds attending the John Stewart and Stephen Colbert event on the National Mall, Oct. 30th, were huge.
In fact, it was the biggest Saturday rider ship in Metro-rail history.
There are three escalators at the L'Enfant Promenade entrance to Metro.
The middle one and the right one were taking people downward that day.
A security camera at the bottom captured these images.
