Dynamics of collapse in a giant ELM (Edge Localized Mode) is presented. A model of transport bifurcation between the H-mode and the magnetic braiding mode (M-mode) is applied to the simulational study of edge plasma dynamics. The bifurcation contains the hysteresis characteristics. The pressure profile development, the propagation of the bifurcation (transition) fronts and the resultant bursting fluxes are obtained. The appearance of a pivot point in the pressure profile, an avalanche followed to the transition front propagation, and the structure of the burst are shown.
