WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Another Metro rider was injured Monday after an apparently intoxicated fall caught on video. Metro officials are raising the alert before New Year's Eve.

In recent weeks at least six intoxicated people have been injured in incidents ranging from falling off escalators to tumbling onto train tracks.

"By far an away Metro is the safest way to get home, especially over the holidays if you've had a couple of drinks," says spokesman Philip Stewart.  "But if your talking about someone who can't stand up then perhaps taking a cab is the better way to go."
