(FOX25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - A local 18-year-old learns the hard way that you shouldn't ride the handrail of an escalator.
A video taken at 11:30pm last night at the Alewife T Station shows 18-year-old Shane O’Malley of Dunstable riding on the handrail when he falls 20 feet to the floor.
As you can see from the video, O’Malley was almost at the top when he fell right off.
O'Malley told FOX 25 he was on his way home from a concert in Boston with friends. He admits he had been drinking.
"We went to the concert. It was a good show, and i was being an idiot on the ride home. I was pretty intoxicated, that's why i don't remember anything." O'Malley explained
O'Malley has no recollection of the fall. The last thing he remembers is waking up in the hospital with a broken bone in his elbow.
"I am a little stiff walking around and my back is hurting me pretty bad" said O'Malley
O'Malley recently graduated from Groton-Dunstable High School. He plans to attend college in the Fall to study nursing.
O'Malley said he learned his lesson about consuming too much alcohol and right now he doesn't even want to leave his home.
