Answer:

Viewed from above, the passenger would appear to be running in a path that would form a decaying spiral from the outside edge of the rotating platform to the center.

Explanation:

This path would be in contrast to the straight line path from the outside edge to the center pole that the passenger would make on a stationary platform.

Because the platform is in motion, the passenger's motion as observed from a fixed point would be re-defined by the combination of the two motions taking place at the same time.
