Man who skied down a 300ft Tube escalator in London


A Norwegian hurtled down a 300ft escalator at Angel station in north London at more than 30mph in a filmed display which was shown on the internet and received over 100,000 views.

However, the London Underground has condemned the action of the stuntman who skied down a Tube escalator, filming the stunt using a camera in the man's helmet.

London Underground said: "This is a dangerous, stupid and irresponsible act that could have resulted in serious injury or death to not only the individual concerned but also other passengers."

The producer of the film commented that other people were not in danger as friends of the stuntman had warned passengers away.

Still, I tend to agree with the London Underground that this stunt could have easily resulted in a tragedy, especially in a public place such as the London Underground.
