LINDENHURST - The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) is taking steps to increase escalator safety at its stations following a deadly accident that happened in Lindenhurst earlier this month.

On March 13, an 88-year-old woman was strangled after falling on an escalator and having her clothing caught in the moving stairs.

Newsday reports that the LIRR will conduct a comprehensive review of all train station escalators and install new safety sensors to prevent similar incidents.
