Police say officers were called to the downtown Wells Fargo building Wednesday afternoon on a report of 20 people stuck on an escalator.

Authorities say the children were with day care providers and some were afraid to get off the escalator, creating a pileup.

WDIO-TV says the injured were treated for cuts and scrapes and one child had a serious ankle injury.
