At least nine people were injured in an escalator malfunction Sunday night at the Back Bay MBTA station, according to the MBTA and Boston EMS.

The Boston EMS reported that the damage appears to be minor. The Transit Police and Boston Fire Department were also on site with EMS.

The MBTA reported that the incident took place shortly after 6pm on Sunday on an escalator connecting the platforms of the Amtrak and Commuter Railway with the station lobby at street level.

MBTA closes the escalator for the time being while investigating the incident.

“It happened as soon as I got up the stairs,” a witness said, according to Mike Saccone Twitter. “I heard a lot of people shouting behind me and I saw a pile of corpses down the escalator.”
