2 passengers fall 10 feet after jet way floor collapses at LAX
Two passengers were in fair condition Wednesday night after falling about 10 feet when a jet way collapsed as they were exiting an aircraft at Los Angeles International Airport, authorities said.
A portion of the floor board next to the aircraft exit door apparently collapsed about 6:50 p.m. shortly after American Airlines flight 557 taxied to Gate 48A, authorities said. The injured passengers were transported to a local hospital.
The flight originated in Boston with a stopover in Chicago before heading to LAX, according to the airline's online flight schedule.
The gate is in Terminal 4. An American Airlines spokesperson was not immediately available for comment.
