US Airways employee killed after getting caught in luggage conveyor at Phoenix airport
PHOENIX (AP) ' Authorities say a US Airways employee has been killed after being caught in a luggage conveyor.
Phoenix police say 60-year-old Robert Demarco apparently became lodged between the upper and lower conveyor belts around noon Friday at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport's Terminal 4.
Phoenix Fire Department personnel were called to the TSA checked baggage inspection area and the man was pronounced dead.
Authorities say there are no indications of foul play, but Phoenix police will investigate the death and Demarco's body was taken to the Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office.
US Airways officials didn't immediately return calls Friday afternoon for comment on the fatal incident and any information on Demarco's tenure with the carrier and his hometown.
