A worker at Los Angeles International Airport reportedly got his arm trapped in a luggage conveyor belt over the weekend.
The unidentified contract employee for United Airlines got his arm stuck in the conveyor belt while performing maintenance on the machine around 6:15 p.m. Saturday, a spokesperson for the airport confirmed to Fox News. Firefighters were called to the scene, where they dismantled the machine to get the man’s arm loose, Los Angeles Fire Department spokeswoman Margaret Stewart told Fox 5.
Firefighters reportedly took about 30 minutes to free the man.
The man was reportedly taken to a hospital for treatment after initially being checked by paramedics at the scene.
His current status has not been shared. The airport is investigating the incident.
