82-Year-Old Killed in Escalator Accident

Helen Jackson, 82, of Dorchester, Ma, was killed in an accident involving an escalator at the MBTA's State Street Station, reports say.

Jackson was heading to a doctor's appointment last month while embarking a station escalator when she apparently fell and a piece of her clothing got caught in the machinery, reports say.

Emergency crews reportedly rushed to free her, but she was pronounced dead at Massachusetts General Hospital. Jackson also reportedly suffered a cardiac arrest, but it was not clear whether the cardiac problem came before or after the fall. The incident remains under investigation, and an autopsy was scheduled to be preformed.
