Anyone have the scoop on the runnaway escalator(s) in the news? What happened? How? What kind of controls were on it?

Here's a better link for elevator/escalator accident/investigation in the news media...
I see they want to do a load test by placing weights on each step...
I hope whoever does that work installs safety restraint cables before proceeding... (to absolutely limit runaway to a few inches)
cheers ...... murray
