Child Rides on Airport Baggage Conveyor System

Airport security requirements can be rather strict. There are some items that you may keep as carry-on luggage and take with you into the cabin. Other items must be checked and travel in a plane's baggage compartment.

But a child is not one of them. You may (and should) keep your toddler with you in the cabin, even though other passengers may wish otherwise.

Business Insider reports that a little boy climbed onto the baggage conveyor belt system at an airport in Santiago, Chile. He appears to have enjoyed the experience, but baggage handlers nonetheless shut down his ride and returned him to his parents.

I am surprised at first that the kid made it through the machine safely for so long, but then it is probably engineered to try and not damage the bags, so maybe not as surprising? He kept his arms inside the conveyer at all times, I think its the only thing that saved him from injury.

When I used to fly I saw this sort of situation pretty often. Some parents think it's funny. Other parents don't watch their kids for differing reasons. It's not funny and could be dangerous. I just don't like kids climbing all over other people's suitcases. Manners, people!
