"We are deeply saddened by this accident, and we are committed to ensuring that it does not happen again," he said. This is not the first time that a passenger has been injured on a moving walkway at Bangkok's Don Mueang Airport. In 2017, a man was seriously injured when his foot became trapped in a travelator. Moving walkways can be dangerous if they are not properly maintained. Passengers should be aware of the risks and take care when using them.
