Toddler spins, scrambles on wild ride on airport bag belt
ATLANTA (AP) — Dramatic video shows a toddler who climbed onto an airport conveyor belt scrambling over suitcases during his wild ride down the luggage chute.
Edith Vega said her 2-year-old son Lorenzo hopped onto the belt when she briefly set him down to print boarding passes at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Monday.
Security video later released by the airport shows some of what happened next.
One camera recorded Lorenzo being pulled through a rubber curtain, beyond the reach of his mother and an airport worker. Video then shows him crawling over bags, trying to avoid being pulled through a screening machine. He pops out on the other side, only to tumble down into another room where startled security workers give him hugs.
Authorities said his hand was broken.
