BALTIMOR – Officials say six people were injured after a "partial equipment failure" associated with a jet bridge at the Thurgood-Marshall International Airport in Baltimore-Washington.
The airport tweeted that six people were taken to hospital on Saturday evening with injuries not life-threatening because of the incident at gate E-10.
A statement from Southwest Airlines says that Flight 822 had just arrived from Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and asked the medical assistants to help with the medical situation associated with the passenger on the flight.
Southwest says the airport's passenger loading bridge "failed", while the medics helped the passenger off the plane. Southwest says that the remaining passengers were able to safely leave the plane using an aerial ladder.
The airport says the plane was moved, and the incident did not cause further impacts on airport operations. No further details were immediately available.
