Six people were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries after a jet bridge failed at an airport in Baltimore.
Just before 8 pm. On Saturday, the southwest flight 822 from the Dominican Republic arrived at Baltimore-Washington International Airport Thurgood Marshall (BWI). The paramedics met with the flight to "assess a medical situation on board that occurred during a flight with a passenger," said a spokesman for the Southwest.
"While the medical staff assisted the passenger outside the aircraft, the airport's passenger loading platform underwent a failure," the spokesman said.
"At the work of bringing the passenger off the plane, the jet bridge that serves the flight gate failed," a BWI spokesman said in a statement. "Six people were injured in a fall."
The injured were transported to local hospitals according to BWI . Victor Ferreira BWI Fire Chief, said on Twitter that "affected personnel were taken to neighborhood hospitals to investigate for minor injuries as a precaution."
The remaining passengers of the flight sank over the air stairs, said the Southwest spokesman.
The failure of the nozzle bridge is "investigated" according to BWI.
There are no other operations at the airport affected, said BWI.
