NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- You probably didn't have an escalator at your high school, but they do have one at Stuyvesant High School in lower Manhattan.

Something went wrong on Thursday, and 10 students were hurt -- one suffered a severe cut to his right big toe.

The students were taken out on stretchers as panicked friends looked on.

"Everyone was panicking. I'm calmed down right now, but everyone was just kinda shook," one student said.

The injuries were all non-life threatening, there was no word on what caused the accident.
