US Airways worker caught in luggage conveyor belts dies

PHOENIX -- A US Airways employee died Friday after being caught in luggage conveyor belts, officials said.

Robert Demarco, 60, apparently became lodged between the upper and lower belts around noon at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport's Terminal 4, police said.

Phoenix Fire Department personnel were called to the TSA checked baggage inspection area and the man was pronounced dead.

Authorities said there was no indications of foul play, but Phoenix police will investigate the death. 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.

In August, a Sky Harbor worker was rescued after getting his hand and leg pinned in a baggage conveyor belt.
