Hazmat team called in to clean large amt. of human poo from escalator -- guess where
If you guessed Florida, you would be...
Wrong! The correct answer makes so much more sense: San Francisco!
San Francisco transportation officials said workers repairing an escalator had to call in a hazardous materials team to remove human excrement.
Bay Area Rapid Transportation officials said a crew pulled apart a broken escalator at the Civic Center Station and discovered such a high volume of human fecal matter that a hazardous materials team had to be called in to remove it, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Thursday.
Officials said human excrement is a frequent cause of malfunction for BART escalators. They said homeless people will often use the stairwells for sleeping or relieving themselves once the stations close.
