I am fairly certain AutoPilot had nothing to do with this.

ouch!

not the first time I've seen this sort of thing (well, maybe first time anyhow involving a Tesla).

a year or two ago at UBC, a local university here, there were 4 different cars including a taxi that accidentally got stuck going down the same set of stairs, all within the same 2 week period.
seems all the drivers all mistook a pedestrian pathway for a shortcut through campus. Since then, the university installed some of those fluorescent bollards at the top of the stairs to discourage such practice

I imagine if the car was facing the stairs but coming down I am not certain that the cameras would pick it up..... :)

Autopilot/emergency braking can detect walls/obstructions. Why not stairs? :)

And this is what happens when they don't stop at the bottom of the stairs.....
