Workers attach cables to the top of a jetway so crane can lift it away from a Southwest Airlines airplane after the jetway suffered a mechanical failure Tuesday, May 13, 2014, at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in Seattle. The end of the walkway, where it was attached to the plane, fell 6 to 8 feet. The incident happened as passengers from Phoenix were disembarking, and the next leg of the flight to Chicago had to be canceled. (AP Photo)
