ESCALATOR-PANTS

SOMERVILLE, Mass. (AP) -- It's awfully cold in the Boston area to go without pants. Transit officials say a commuter riding the "T" lost his trousers to an escalator. A spokesman for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority tells the Boston Herald the man's pants got caught in the escalator. The commuter wasn't hurt, but he was left standing in his shorts while his trousers were stuck at the bottom of the escalator. Transit officials are urging commuters to be mindful of loose clothing.
