Fall from passenger door

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.

Enjoy!!

An Airbus A320-200, was preparing for departure from Warsaw (Poland) to Rome (Italy). The flight had boarded all of the passengers and was preparing to close the doors. The jetway was moving away from the plane when a flight attendant stepped out to close the door of the plane. He lost his footing and fell onto the tarmac, a few metres below. Medical services arrived almost immediately and the crew member was taken to hospital where he was treated for cuts, bruises and a broken leg. He will be unable to work for three or four months. The flight continued to its destination and wasn’t delayed.
