In the pic, the collapsed bridge section resembles a collapsed accordion.

Playing a sad-looking tune for a while. Luckily, no injuries.

I thought the comments were sort of weird. Of course the plane is going to have to use another gate. It's a darn high jump to go from the ground to the aircraft door.....especially with all the carry on luggage people have.

Carry on luggage is another subject but one the airlines need to address. I carry my one bag that fits regulation size and often find the luggage racks are full from people who have many bags and some that are obviously way too big for carry on.
