20 injured in Rome after escalator loses control

Rome (CNN)Twenty-four people have been injured after an escalator malfunctioned and rapidly sped downward at a Rome metro station, leaving passengers in a jumble at the bottom, Italian officials say.

Three of the victims are in a serious condition, including a man who partially lost his foot.
Most of those involved in Tuesday night’s horrifying accident at Repubblica metro station were Russian football fans on their way to attend a Champions League match between Roma and CSKA Moscow, a spokesman with Italy’s Fire Brigade said.
