DENVER — A United Airlines flight was forced to divert to Denver International Airport on Wednesday night after a passenger became stuck in the bathroom.

United Airlines Flight 1554 was flying from Washington D.C. to San Francisco when it made the unscheduled stop in Denver around 7:28 p.m.

Video shot by a fellow passenger, Taylor Kimber, shows crews trying to get the door open.
