In a startling incident at a busy South Korean subway station, at least 14 individuals were injured, with three of them sustaining serious injuries when an escalator unexpectedly reversed direction, causing passengers to be thrown to the ground.

The incident occurred during the morning rush-hour at the Sunae station in Bundang, located south of Seoul in Gyeonggi Province.

Security footage captured the alarming moment when the escalator, which was intended to move upward, abruptly started moving downward. This sudden reversal led to panicked riders tumbling down the escalator, resulting in a pile-up at its base.
