Officials at the Atlanta airport are investigating after a small child was injured after taking a ride on a conveyor belt.
According to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the boy accessed the automated baggage screening system via the Spirit Airlines ticket counter on Monday.
Edith Vega, told WSB-TV that she set her 2-year-old son, Lorenzo, down so she could print her boarding pass on Monday.
She says she looked up moments later to see him being ferried away on the conveyor belt behind a Spirit Airlines ticket counter.
The airline says the closed counter wasn't staffed. An Atlanta police report says a TSA worker alerted authorities after finding Lorenzo in the bag room with a broken right hand.
