Guardia Civil officers have described the death of a five-month-old baby trapped in a baggage collection conveyor belt at a Spanish airport as an "accident".
Emergency services tried to resuscitate the baby, but he was pronounced dead by the airport's doctor at the scene.
– Guardia Civil spokesman
We are still in the early stages of the investigation and looking at CCTV footage, but it seems that it was an accident.
The mother left the baby on the conveyor belt, which can be activated by detecting weight or by an airport employee.
It seems that the baby carrier's weight activated the belt and the child was trapped in the rollers in the drop zone.
