    The moment six passengers fell around 12 feet from the Ural Airlines stairs as the top platform of the steps collapsed 
    A representative of Barnaul airport in Siberia said the accident was due to a hidden fault on the steps which was impossible to detect during the regular pre flight check
    A passenger said: They all fell at once, it was like watching a computer game.
    I was about to go up the steps when it happened. I was the first who ran to help.
    One man had broken his leg, and others were injured but it was not immediately clear how badly, he said.
    A young woman was lucky as she wasnt injured at all, she just got a shock, we all got quite a fright, he added.
    Passengers and airport staff rushed to help those who fell.
    The victims were the only passengers on the steps when the collapse happened the rest were queuing on the tarmac in temperatures of 15C.

    But Western Siberia Transport Prosecutors official Oksana Gorbunova said inspectors were now working at the airport examining what went wrong.
