A man is hospitalized after falling 40 feet from an escalator at Atlantic City's newest casino.

The man was going up the escalator at Revel Casino at 1:30 a.m. Monday.

WPVI-TV reports witnesses say the man was sitting on the hand rail when he fell backward and landed in the lobby.
The man's name has not been released.

Police tell the TV station they're reviewing surveillance video, however the incident appears to be an accident.
