Boy, 9, safe after trip on baggage conveyor at Twin Cities airport – Minneapolis Star Tribune
A 9-year-old boy was uninjured on Saturday after climbing onto a conveyor belt used for baggage at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
The boy, left a group of about 20 travelers who were checking their bags. He then dove onto the belt, which takes luggage from the ticketing counter to a screening area, and rode it for a short time before airport police found him.
He was reunited with his family and the group of travelers in less than five minutes, said airport spokesperson Pat Hogan.
“He got a little adventure before the adventure,” Hogan said.
Hogan was not aware of any similar incidents and said the area that the boy accessed was “very difficult to get into.”
