First of all, she's fine. Minor scratches and maybe some mild bruising, but nothing that should prevent you from laughing at her misfortune.

An unidentified 56-year-old Southie thought she was saving herself some time by boarding a Boston subway station escalator with her motorized scooter.

As it turned out, she wasn't.


MBTA CCTV cameras captured the woman's run-in with technology as the mobility device succumbed to logic and flipped over. An MBTA employee rushed over to stop the moving stairs, and passers-by helped the woman to her feet.


She reportedly walked away from the scene unscathed.
