Let's just blame it on the rain and this caused the rush. Mother Nature's force Majeure.

BTS is in no way responsible. The injured and seriously injured can pay their own medical bills & costs for long term disabilities. Thanks for clearing that up.

Actually if the escalator did in fact fail contrary to what the police are saying then they probably are responsible in some way or the other.

Watch them try to pin it on the girls fashion boots that they had no grip in wet conditions.
