MOSCOW: A passenger collecting luggage at a Moscow airport slipped as she reached for her dog carrier and was accidentally swept away on the baggage carousel, local media reported Sunday.

The passenger, a woman in her late 50s, flew into Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport from Belgrade on Saturday.

“She was waiting to collect her luggage by the baggage carousel when she saw a pet carrier with her dog and reached for it,” a transport police spokesperson told Moskva news agency.

“Apparently losing her balance, she fell onto the conveyor belt and was carried away to the luggage room.”
