(Newser) – A five-month-old baby died on an airport baggage carousel in Alicante, Spain. The baby’s American mother had just arrived in Alicante where the child’s Canadian father was already waiting. The family was reportedly traveling to Spain for a vacation in the nearby city of Dénia. An airport security officer told the Daily Mail the mother set the boy's carrier on a conveyor belt for large luggage items. The infant was crushed by machinery after the belt started to move.
