A San Francisco-bound flight was diverted to Denver on Wednesday for an unusual emergency. A passenger got stuck inside the plane's bathroom.

Video taken by a passenger shows crews on United Airlines flight 1554 working to open the door that somehow was jammed.

The new scheduled arrival time, according to FlightStats, was 11:12 p.m.
