It could well have turned into a horrible accident where people got piled up on the escalator and started falling down the escalator steps. Somehow we all pushed and stumbled past him.

He was oblivious of it all, the entire time! I even turned around to talk to him. Completely oblivious. I just left and went to my next session.
